A 16-point resolution was approved with an absolute majority at a huge labourers’ demonstration held under the aegis of Muttahida Qaumi Movement’s Labour Division in front of Karachi Press Club on Thursday against Sindh government’s Local Government (Amended) Ordinance and its anti-labour policies.
Through the resolutions moved by MQM Labour Division’s In-charge Kazim Raza, the mammoth gathering of the labourers and their CBA unions, belonging to both government and semi-government organizations, demanded that the Sindh Local Government Ordinance-2013 which amounted to usurpation of rights of local government institutions be withdrawn at once.
