Imphal, July 14:

Bhartya Mazdoor Sangh (BMS) Manipur State in a press release has urged the Manipur Health Mission Society (MHMS) to allow EPF 26% of contract health workers of the society for the year 2015 and 2016. The labour Union expressed grim concern over the efforts of the State Health Mission to put off the social security scheme of health worker earning minimal wages guaranteed by the central Government and also listed in the union gazette notification No.S.O.1431 dated 14.05.2010.

The labour union raised pertinent questions on the lackadaisical approach of the Health Mission to delay EPF payment to the contract workers since 2015, while neighboring state of Nagaland had approved and implemented it on 01.04.2015. The union termed the Health Mission Society’s decision to take up the issue only after BMS mulled to take up the case and file an FIR, as insincerity on its part. BMS in the press release also refuted the claims of an undisclosed MHMS official who had gone on record to the media stating that the delay in EPF is due to incomplete documents of the workers.

The Union warned of relentless efforts for every labour so that they get their due wage for their work. BMS Manipur state will join the week long nationwide “Sarkar Jagao Saptah” from 24.07.2020 to 30.07.2020, it further added.
