All the eleven central trade unions who have been jointly leading the campaign and struggle on the ten point charter of demands since the last four years have called for this ‘March to Parliament’.The Ten Demands of the Joint Trade Union Movement of India are as follows:
1. Concrete measures to contain price rise
2. Strict enforcement of labour laws
3. Constitute National Social Security Fund at the national level to provide universal social security coverage to unorganised workers
4. No contractorisation of work of permanent/ perennial nature; equal wages and benefits for contract workers as the permanent workers doing the same job
