The collective efforts of unions, cooperatives, NGOs and most of all, the unorganized workers themselves, backed by the work of NCEUS and the recommendations of NAC-1, resulted in Parliament passing the Unorganized Workers’ Social Security Act (UWSSA), 2008. However, three years since then, the Central Government has not formulated and notified a minimum social security package for all workers in the unorganized sector.
