TIRUCHI: Members of the Centre of Indian Trade Union (CITU) staged a demonstration in front of the Collectorate here on Tuesday in support of their charter of demands.

The demonstrators, led by the CITU district president V.V. Krishnamurthy, urged the State Government to take steps to set up separate office for the unorganised sector workers welfare boards in districts and make them functional.

They also sought adequate allocation of funds for the welfare boards and grant pension of Rs. 1,000 to the retired workers in the unorganised sector.

They also urged the Government to take steps to make the Labour Department function more effectively, besides implementing the labour and industries laws.
