Monday, 06 Feb 2012

TNN reported that the Rashtriya Colliery Mazdoor Sangh, one of the biggest unions of the Coal India Ltd, has called a daylong strike on February 13 to protest the poor hike in wages of workers.

Over 108,000 workers of the CIL and its nine subsidiary companies are member of the RCMS.

RCMS president and former MLA Mr Israil Ansari alleged that the company and the Union coal ministry had cheated the workers by not keeping their promises.

He said “We feel cheated and have decided to go on a day's token strike on February 13. If the management does not amend the agreement, which is against the interest of the workers, we will call a three day strike in the second phase.”

The date for the three-day strike in yet to be decided

He threatened that if the CIL management and the ministry failed to make amendments at the earliest, the workers might even go for an indefinite strike.

There are around 360,000 workers in the CIL and its subsidiary companies.
