TEA laments on measures of department of labour

16
Jun '08
We wish to inform that more than 1500 garment export units are functioning in Tirupur and in last year 2007-08 our exports was Rs. 9,950 crores and in fact in 2006-07 our export was Rs. 11,000 crores.

On the labour front, Tirupur knitwear sector is currently providing employment to 300 thousands workers directly and 200 thousands people indirectly.

It is to be noted that when our export performance was good before appreciation of rupee against dollar, we were facing the shortage of 50,000 workforce.

Off late, the officials from Department of Labour have been visiting the leading garment exporting units and taking action against Managing Directors and Managers of the units.

The actions of the Department of Labour have highly affected the morale of exporting units, which are already struggling due to appreciation of rupee against dollar and loss of orders.

The Hon'ble Minister may make a note of it that no worker has complained against the Management for giving overtime and in fact, the overtime is normally given with the concurrence of the workers only and this practice has been existing in Tirupur over the period of years.

The garment units are daily providing one hour extra as overtime and it is also to be noted that the workers never prefer to join in a unit which provide work for only eight hours.

As most of the workers have come from various places of Tamilnadu, they wish to work more hours to earn money and double the wages for extra one hour put by them in the units.
