Gorakhpur mill workers win victory

The workers of two mills in Gorakhpur won a long battle against the owners, after much struggle and sacrifice.

Workers who had been dismissed for participating in a May Day rally in Delhi were reinstated, and the locked out mills reopened on June 3, 2011. These two mills were locked out on April 10, 2011. 12 of the 18 dismissed workers will join work immediately and the remaining 6 will be taken back after a domestic enquiry. The workers also forced the owners to accept that no one from the management will be in the enquiry committee; it will have two members from the office staff and one workers’ nominee.

It may be recalled that about 1500 workers from the town participated in the May Day rally in Delhi. The factory owners tried their level best to prevent this from happening. So did the government officials, who threatened the leaders  of the workers with arrest for "instigating workers".  

During the course of the struggle of the past few months, the workers have faced the full brunt of the united onslaught of the owners and the district administration. They have been fired upon by the goons of the owners. They have been lathi charged. Their leaders have been arrested. The owners have tried every trick in the trade to break the morale of the workers. However, they failed in their aims, and the workers stood united. Finally, the owners had to relent.
