North MCD regularises 168 part-time sanitation workers
North Delhi Municipal Corporation has regularised nearly 170 part-time sanitation workers of the civic body, a senior official said on Thursday.
The North MCD said the promotion has been done in keeping with the vision of Pt Deendayal Upadhyaya, who stood for “the last man in the row”. “The promotion would raise their salaries by nearly eight times. There are 168 such employees who would benefit from this,” he said.
The proposal was made recently and North MCD’s Standing Committee Chairman Mohan Bhardwaj made the decision official on Wednesday, he said. Arrears and salary hike demanded by sanitation workers at all the three civic bodies have had led to strikes by them in the recent past.
The striking sanitation workers have maintained that there was no point going back to work if they don’t get their salaries.
