Labour ministry urges Maran to address jute sector issues

Feb '10
To resolve the contentious issues affecting the jute sector, the Union Labour Minister has advised Mr Dayanidhi Maran, the Union Textile Minister to put in to action the proposals put forth by the tripartite committee, which was set up after a strike by the workers of the jute sector, earlier in 2008.

Mr Mallikarjun Kharge, the Labour Minister suggested that since a few recommendations like training of workers, cost structure of the industry and decision of the Central Government on the Tariff Commission report 2009 came under the ambit of the Textiles Ministry, he was advocating them to act on these matters expeditiously.

He also said that those proposals which came under the preview of the Labour Ministry like strengthening of enforcement of labour laws like Provident Fund, Employees' State Insurance etc and others would be taken up to ensure that these are strictly implemented by the jute sector factories.

The government has woken up to the need to address issues relating to the jute industry as workers had once again gone on an indefinite strike on December 14, 2009 which was suspended on February 14, after a period of two months.
