The last sentence of your post reads "The uniform is a over coat the summer in Chennai is very heavy."
Now the question arises whether housekeeping workers wear the overcoat from Monday to Friday? Is weight of the overcoat is less on these days but more on Saturday and Sunday?
As stated by Mr M Umakanthan, company uniform gives distinct identity. If housekeeping employees are expected from wearing the uniform then what if the security guards also ask for exemption from wearing the uniform on Saturday and Sunday? After all in the personal clothing, a person has a better looks. Who would not like to look better?
The argument will go on. Therefore, the saner or discreet option is to abide by the rules of your client. However, if the weight of the overcoat hampers the work during certain activities, then exemption may be asked on case to case basis.

Your question raised is meaningless and trifle and deserves no reply. Still learned members have shared their precious views.
It is very basic that while on duty, whether on normal working day or on holiday, the contractor's or company workers must wear the specified uniform. This matter is not questionable. It is intrinsic part of disciplined way of working.
This forum is not meant
for answering such stupid questions.
