Equal Justice for All: The Struggle of North Eastern Hill University Workers
Mawphniang Napoleon 1993 (Ri Bhoi)
The workers of North Eastern Hill University,
Under the banner of All NEHU Workers’ Union,
Are straight and firm with their demands,
For regularisation and equal pay for all.
Their nature of work is the same
As that of regular employees,
As per notifications and Swami Handbook 2023.
But the admin section exploits them,
Engaging them as casual workers for years
Without issuing identity cards or appointment letters.
This issue must be solved, for it is unjust.
Our Union's vision is clear,
We fight for humanity and justice,
No matter how hard the road may be.
But victory is our calling,
For casual workers are entitled
To equal pay for equal work,
As interpreted by Supreme Court judgements.
But for far too long,
They have been denied this right by the admin section,
Their exploitation must end,
Under the banner of All NEHU Workers’ Union.
We will not rest until justice is served,
For the workers of North Eastern Hill University.
