Unions reject offer from JK Jute Mill
May '10
Management of the Juggilal Kamlapat (JK) Jute Mill has proposed the workers to restart the unit, as the stalemate between the mills management and the seven workers unions prolongs.

The management proposed that they will restart the unit if the unions accede to the request that, every group of 30 workers will produce a minimum of one tonne of jute each day.

Nonetheless, the proposal did not succeed in luring the union leaders who are preparing to intensify their struggle from May 14.

The unions, over the last 46 days have undertaken a relay protest and the leaders have declared that they will also resort to a protest in the Labour Commissioner's office compound, on May 14.

The mill management, following the sharp fall in production during the month of March, announced that the operations were ceased temporarily since April 5.

The workers were required to produce around 65-75 tonnes of jute, but, during initial 20 days of March the production was recorded at just about 35 tonnes per day, whereas over the last 10 days it touched a low of 10-14 tonnes per day.
