UP Migration Commission for Labourers Employment
To secure migrant workers, the Uttar Pradesh government has decided to set up a Migration Commission for employment of such labourers in the state and made it clear that any state that wants them from UP has to seek its permission.
It has been proposed to look into various factors associated with migrant workers’ rights and to prevent exploitation while providing an official framework to ensure socio-economic-legal support for them. “Insurance, social security, re-employment assistance, provision for unemployment allowance are some of the factors that will be looked into by the commission.
Upset that migrant labourers were “not properly taken care of” by various states in the wake of the coronavirus lockdown, Adityanath said, “These workers are our biggest resource and we will give them employment in Uttar Pradesh as state government is going to set up a panel for their employment.”
