The National Domestic Workers Movement conducted an interactive session

The National Domestic Workers Movement conducted an interactive session today on “domestic workers’ rights and their issues”, in collaboration with All Nagaland Domestic Workers Union and Assisi Centre for Integrated Development in Dimapur.

Coordinator of All Nagaland Domestic Workers Union, Sister Pramila Lobo, said a majority of domestic workers in the state are underpaid and with no proper mechanism to protect them.

She therefore said that there is a need to regulate laws on minimum wages, mandatory paid leave and regular payment.

The Union urged upon the state government to give due recognition to domestic workers and also include them in the Schedule of Employment of Minimum Wages Act, Nagaland.
