Neyveli strike ends

 A six week strike by contract workers of Neyveli Lignite Corporation(NLC) in Tamilnadu ended on October 27, 2010. Nearly 13,000 contract workers were participating in the strike at this state owned coal and electricity generation company. The charter of demand of workers included regularisation of workers who had put in more than 10 years of service, wage revisions, equal pay for equal work and so on. The agreement gave contract workers an additional monthly pay of Rs 1,560 as well as an additional bonus. 

Crucial in forcing the  management to negotiate with the workers was the threat of 750 permanent workers to go on strike if the management did not sympathetically deal with the contract workers. The strike was marked by road blockades to power plants, and mass arrests.

Parties of the capitalist class claim that there is no alternative to the program of globalisation,liberalisation and privatisation. The truth is that there IS an alternative.

The alternative is to reorient the economy to fulfil people’s needs instead of fulfilling capitalist greed. This is the program for the Navnirman of India.

Manifesto 2014There is growing realisation among workers, peasants and other self-employed people that the program of liberalisation and privatisation only serves to enrich an exploiting minority at their expense. Mass resistance is growing to this anti-worker, anti-peasant and anti-national program. However, the working class is being prevented from realizing its potential as the leader of all the exploited, and as the grave-digger of capitalism, by those in the communist movement who are spreading harmful illusions and compromising the class struggle.
