INDIA: Textile Workers Gear Up For Prolonged Wage Protests
The strike, the latest in a series of actions taken by the workers, will be an indefinite one said the joint action council (JAC) of the textile trade unions. Textile workers are hoping to improve pay and conditions through the action.
The JAC has also called on workers to organise unit-level demonstrations on August 4 and 5, to be followed by a mass demonstration at the headquarters of the Southern India Mills Association (SIMA) and South India Small Spinners Association (Sisspa) at Coimbatore on August 10. Similar demonstrations are planned for Madurai.
