Operations to resume at Vizag's Chittivalasa Jute Mills
Sep '11
Visakhapatnam's Tagarapuvalasa based Chittivalasa Jute Mills, which ceased operations subsequent to the April 20, 2009 lockout, is expected to soon resume operations, as the deadlock existing between the mill's management and its workers has ended.

As per the agreement between the workers and the management, the workers would resume their duty once power supply is restored and the maintenance work at the mill gets concluded. The mill is expected to resume operations in a few days.

The management of the oldest composite mills of Andhra Pradesh announced a lockout in 2009, when owing to power supply related problems, the number of its shifts were reduced from three to two.

President of the INTUC-affiliated CJM Workers' Union, a recognised union, said on resuming operations it is proposed to revise the dearness allowance (DA) two times a year based on the consumer price index.

Also, the outstanding DA since 1992, which works out to an average of Rs. 76,920 would be paid.

In the event of the death of any worker, alongside the amount of worker's contribution, the mill management would pay an equivalent sum.

In addition, the management has consented to introduce a voluntary retirement scheme for the benefit of some of the workers.

Moreover, the workers who retired during the lockout period would be provided with an opportunity to rejoin the mill, while in case of medically unfit workers, one of the family members of such workers would be given employment in the mill on compassionate grounds.

Further, the management has consented to pay bonus in a single instalment, and after a period of six months post-recommencement, wages will be linked to productivity.

The mill houses a capacity to produce 100 tons per day while employing 1,800 badli and 2,200 permanent workers.
