The laborers working in Britannia Nepal Pvt.Ltd located at Parwanipur of Birgunj Metropolitan City stopped work from Monday and have joined the agitation demanding the services as declared in the Labor Act.
They alleged that they have been exploited by the contractors in the factory. The laborers staged a sit-in and protested in front of the main gate.
According to Bishal Patel, one of the laborers of the factory, no contractor or industry administration has provided any proof of agreement, including appointment letter, Patel said. One hundred and eight workers in the factory are employed through the contractor.
As the laborers are hired through contractors, the industry administration believes that the contractor should be concerned about laborers' service facilities.
