CITU seeks revival of sick units

By Our Staff Reporter

HYDERABAD, JUNE 8. The State council of the Centre of Indian Trade Unions (CITU), which met here on June 6 and 7, discussed the problems facing working class and decided to represent them with its proposals to the Chief Minister, Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy, in two or three days.

Leaders of the council -- S. Veeraiah, general secretary, P. Ajay Kumar, P. Bhaskar, secretaries, and P. Raja Rao, treasurer -- at a press conference here on Tuesday said among the problems facing workers was filing of false cases by the police for participating in various agitations. They demanded withdrawal of such cases. They stated that lives of many workers had become unstable following the policies pursued by the Telugu Desam Government as `dictated by the World Bank.' The policies led to the closure of industries and neglect of small units. The council sought steps by the new Government to revive the industries.

They wanted reorganisation of the tripartite committees on workmen which, the council alleged, was represented mostly by the TDP trade unions. Representation should be provided to all trade unions on these committees, as also on the committee to tackle accidents.

The council, they pointed out, urged the Government to bring in a legislation on employees working in the unorganised sector after consulting all trade unions. It should revive sick industries after constituting a committee with representatives of all trade unions and conducting a comprehensive study.
