Ganesh Naik had then said, “The con­tract work­ers in the city are pro­vided fa­cil­i­ties on par with per­ma­nent staff like prov­i­dent fund, bonus, gra­tu­ity. There is how­ever a con­stant fear amongst them that they could be sacked by a new con­trac­tor.”

He added, “In or­der to al­lay their fears and give jus­tice to them as they have worked for years, I have the civic body to make them per­ma­nent. They will also get a pay hike in ba­sic salary and al­lowance.”

He as­sured, “Once the civic body sends the ap­proved pro­posal to the govern­ment for sanc­tion, I will take it up at the min­istry level and en­sure that it is passed.”

For­mer Thane MP San­jeev Naik had warned that if the state govern­ment fails to ap­prove the pro­posal to this ef­fect, he will file a pe­ti­tion against the govern­ment in the court.

Ap­pre­ci­at­ing the de­ci­sion, he had said, ‘Thou­sands of work­ers will ben­e­fit from the de­ci­sion. Thane guardian min­is­ter has taken a his­tor­i­cal step to en­sure so­cial jus­tice for work­ers.”

In­tro­duc­ing the res­o­lu­tion, the then house leader Anant Su­tar had said, “This is a his­toric mo­ment that will give jus­tice to the work­ers who have helped our city grow. Guardian min­is­ter’s de­ci­sion has taken into ac­count the plight of the work­ers and as­sured them their fu­ture se­cu­rity.”
