This paper deals with the plight of contract workers. It highlights the emerging challenges of trade unionism among them in selected industries of Jamshedpur in India. After 1990s, casualization of workforce has been the major development among Indian industries. The triangular employment relationship, dispersal over multiple job sites, several bosses, and non-cooperating attitude of regular workers make it difficult for the contract workers to unite against exploitation and defend their rights. Trade unions are not capable to intervene among casual workers as much as required. This paper tries to provide the current status of trade unionism among contract workers in India.
