Labor department urges weavers to resume work
24
Jan '11
The workers from the textile industrial belt of Surat had called an agitation on the issue of wage hike. The labor department had given a notice to the weavers in Surat to begin their units or to get ready to face the action that would be taken by the department. The notice has been successful in restarting more than 50 percent of the weaving units from the industrial belt of Sayan, located in the outer reaches of the city.

The agitation took off from Sayan on January 10 and then reached the other industrial agglomerations of Surat. It led to the closure of over 4.5 lakh powerlooms and had rendered more than seven lakh workers jobless. Majority of these workers have migrated from other states like Orissa, Uttar Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh and Bihar.

The main concern of the labor department was to ascertain that weaving units in Sayan, which had been shut down because of the ongoing agitation, should start their operations so that the agitation can be controlled. It is the moral obligation of the weaving units in the city to follow the ultimatum without thinking about the repercussion.

The labor department was able to start the operations of the weaving units which had been closed for sometime after several rounds of discussions with the weavers as well as the union leaders representing the workers on January 21. More than 50 percent of the weaving units have resumed their operations and the remaining units are also expected to start functioning by today.
