Workers of Alang-Sosiya

A Survey of Working Conditions in a Ship-Breaking Yard, 1983-2013

A detailed analysis of the working and living conditions at the Alang-Sosiya ship-breaking yard raises several questions about the Gujarat model of development. This paper aims to identify the major challenges in implementing rules for the protection and improvement of workers' rights at the micro level through an in-depth analysis of ship-breaking workers at Alang-Sosiya, and suggests measures to ensure the effective implementation of workers' rights in hazardous industries.

I thank Sanket Gaikwad and Shymal Chakma for collecting and documenting information related to labour conditions at Alang-Sosiya. I am grateful to the National Human Rights Commission, New Delhi, for providing financial support to conduct this research work.
