with 0 Comment


Indefinite strike by the workers of Uranium Corporation of India Limited in Jharkhand's East Singhbhum district today entered the third day, affecting production in the company.

Around 4300 workers of UCIL's six units, including Jadugora Uranium Mines, Turamdih Mines, Narwapahar, Bhatin, Baghjata Mines and Mahuldih, are on a strike since Thursday demanding 27 per cent wage hike and two increments, General Secretary of the Uranium Kamgar Union (UKU) Rajaram Singh said.

"The production in UCIL has been stalled completely for the third consecutive day today as no worker has reported to duty," Singh claimed.

The four labour unions -- INTUC affiliated Jadugora Labour Union (JLU), Indian Federation of Trade Union affiliated Uranium Kamgar Union (UKU), Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh affiliated Uranium Mazdoor Sangh and JMM affiliated Singhbhum Uranium Mazdoor Union (SUMU) -- are supporting the strike.

Plea for national minimum wage - Indian National Trade Union Congress

with 0 Comment


INTUC today demanded proper implementation of labour laws in the country and asked the Centre to fix a national minimum wage.

National minimum wage should be fixed by the Central government and it should not be left to the state governments to decide, INTUC national president G Sanjeeva Reddy told reporters here. The national minimum wage should be the benchmark on which wages are fixed, he said.

Alleging that the central, state PSUs and private sector units were converting permanent employees into contract workers, he said doors were being opened for contract workers.

"We will press government to prohibit contract system."

Contract workers should be paid on a par with permanent workers, he said, adding it should be equal pay for equal work.
