Tight security for strike call in coalmine area

Staff Reporter

Sikasa for wage board recommendations

KARIMNAGAR: The proposed 72-hour strike call from April 25 to 27 given by the Sikasa (Singareni Karmika Sangham), an outfit of the CPI (Maoist) group, demanding implementation of the seventh wage board recommendations to coal workers, has become a cause of concern for the SCCL authorities and the police in the Singareni coal belt region.

The police are taking steps to avoid any untoward incident in the wake of the strike call.

Already the "viplava karmika sanghams" (revolutionary trade unions) have intensified their campaign of persuading coal workers to participate in the strike by organising gate meetings near underground mines.

The trade unions affiliated to the revolutionary trade unions -- the Godavari Loya Boggugani Karmika Sangham, the Shramika Shakthi Godavari Boggugani Karmika Sangham, the Singareni Gani Karmika Sangham -- etc were supervising the situation to ensure that the strike was a success.

The employees were demanding the seventh wage board committee recommendations as the new wage board recommendations had not been implemented for the past 46 months. Though the recognised trade unions have remained silent on the issue, they feel that all employees would participate in the strike to press the Government for early implementation of the wage board recommendations.
