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 thatthere 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.
