Please advise me in the following case.
Our plant is having nearly 70 No.s of security guards are working since last 15 years as a contract labour. We are paying wages through a private security contractor as per the minimum wages stated in gavernent gazette. From last Eight years they are working under M/s.Hawk securities and the said contract is going to be terminated from February'2012 onwards. The company has engaged a new contractor, the new one wants to recruit new security guards.
Now, the secutiry guards are demanding for their regularisation through company rolls. They have gheraoed the site officials without prior intimation and had given one day time to settle the issue othetwise, they will take up this issue as political issue. But management has no idea to regularise them, but they can give assuarance that, in new security contract also same guards will be taken.
Please advise what are the steps have to be taken by management to settle this issue with security personnel.
