Contractual employees protest in Bhubaneswar demanding equal pay for equal work


Bhubaneswar: Members of Odisha Government Contractual Employees Association (OGCEA) on Sunday staged a massive demonstration in Bhubaneswar.

The OGCEA members are staging dharna at Lower PMG against the contractual appointment rule of the Odisha government demanding that the state government should abolish the contractual appointment rules which were implemented in 2013.

Under the system, a contractual employee is appointed after clearing the necessary exam, tests conducted by OPSC. Later, they are engaged as contractual government employee for a period of six years which entitles them to a meagre salary compared to the regular counterparts, allege the employees.

The Odisha Government Contractual Employees Association (OGCEA) has also demanded implementation of one rule for all the government employees.
