The Transport Corporation employees sat on a dharna in capital of Himachal Pradesh, Shimla on 17th July 2012 under the leadership of the Himachal Road Transport Employees United Coordination Committee. Almost 1500 Transport Corporation employees from throughout the state took part in this dharna. There were employees of all 23 depots.
Workers are extremely angry because the Corporation has been continuously violating their just rights. In 2002, the Corporation had recruited bus assistants, but they are not being regularised. In spite of acceptance by the government, the Corporation management is going back on its obligation to give dearness allowance to the contract employees. Other contract employees (cleaners, piece meal workers, women water carriers, etc.) are also not getting regularised.
