Striking jute mill workers seek CM's intervention

Jan '10
Representatives of jute mill workers' in the state of West Bengal met the Chief Minister of the state Mr. Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee to make him aware about the issues in ongoing strike in the respective industry.

Since December 14, 2009, around 250,000 workers working in 50 odd mills are on strike and demanded from the CM his time to address their views. They sought the State Government's assistance to take up the issues with the Union Government and force the management's to clear their dues.

Demands of these workers include job security, payment of arrears in dearness allowance and removal of anomalies in payments of provident fund, gratuity and bonus.

Earlier, the Ministry of Textile and Ministry of Food had announced a 20 percent dilution in the obligatory Jute Packaging Materials Act (JPMA), owing to the ongoing strike in jute industry, to fulfill food grain packaging requirements. Under this dilution, use of plastic would be allowed for packaging of food grains such as rice and wheat.
