28 February, 2014:Contract Workers in Tarapur Atomic Power Station on Strike
4,000 Contract workers of Tarapur Atomic Power Station are on strike since 24th February demanding regularisation and for increasing pay scale. These workers are mostly from the families who have been displaced for the construction of the Atomic plant and have completed more than 7 years as contract workers.
Our full support and solidarity to the striking workers for a fully justified cause. The Government should take immediate action for the regularisation of these workers.
We are yet to start our journal. We propose to start a triennial first to inform the workers about the organisation, its activities as also to publish various orders on the issues of the Casual and Contract and unorganised workers.
