Open-end yarn mills on indefinite strike from Oct 1

Sep '11
Open-end yarn mills in Somanur and Mangalam towns of Coimbatore district in Tamil Nadu will stop production from October 1 onwards, the newly formed Somanur Open-end Mills Association has announced.

The Association is demanding ban on export of waste cotton to ensure its availability to them and thus safeguard their industry. It is also demanding that the government should take measures to control hoarding of cotton, to reduce fluctuation in yarn prices.

In addition, the Association has urged the State government to bring an early solution to the ongoing indefinite strike by powerloom owners who work on job-rate basis, as it is directly affecting them. The Association said that the open-end mills have suffered a loss of around Rs. 25 million due to the month-long strike, which has also affected nearly 5,000 workers in the sector.

The open-end mills produce yarn varieties less than C20s using waste cotton. These varieties of yarn are used by powerlooms in the adjoining Erode and Karur areas for weaving bedsheets, bedspreads and blankets, which are then marketed across the country.
