Labour department wants PL for laborers on voting day

Bengaluru: The Labour Department has pressed for paid leave (PL) for the private company, institution workers, and laborers on May 12, to exercise their franchise during the state Assembly elections.

“Paid leave should be sanctioned to the laborers to cast their votes. If continuous production is must, an alternative system should be developed for the production and such laborers should be given enough time to cast their vote,” said an official from the department.

Additional Chief Election Officer already ordered the labor department commissioner to take immediate action to declare PL to all workers and laborers working in all shifts.
