A protest of employees, including Gadani's shop-breaking workers, here Friday demanded that the government implement national ship-breaking policies and remove heavy taxes from this critical economic sector.
As per the details, on the occasion of the third anniversary of the martyrdom of 29 workers in Gadani ship-breaking fire mishap, a Gadani rally was held by the National The Union of Trade Unions and the Union of Gadani Ship-breaking Workers.
Trying to address the protest, the speakers said that three years have passed on to this tragedy, but the Balochistan government has so far failed to provide ship-breaking workers with legal protection.
As a consequence of ship-breaking jobs, in the worst conditions today they are forced to work. It is a distant dream for the implementation of labor laws and health and safety.
Despite the passage of three years to no proper law-making for shipbreaking workers, this could lead to a major disaster.
It is important to bring proper lawmaking to the ship breaking in the industrial sector. A draft law made with broad labor consultation should be tabled as soon as possible in assembly. Health and safety laws should be applied in this sector and the process of contract labor should be terminated.
