Industrial workers denied rights: AIDWA

Special Correspondent

Labour authorities not taking effective steps to protect them

PONDICHERRY: : The Pondicherry unit of the All India Democratic Women's Association (AIDWA) and the Coordination Committee of Working Women have expressed concern over the "denial" of welfare measures for industrial workers under the Labour law.

In a joint statement here on Tuesday, AIDWA secretary K. Mahalakshmi and R. Geetha of the Coordination Committee said a number of industrial estates had come up in and around Pondicherry employing thousands of workers. However, the benefits for workers envisaged under the Labour laws had not been made available to them. Whenever the workers came under a common banner of the trade unions to assert the statutory guaranteed rights and privileges they faced retrenchment. When the aggrieved workers approached the Labour authorities no effective steps were taken to protect them.

They said that there was an instance of an industry showing the door to a group of 30 women employees though they had put in about 24 years service. They called upon the Administration to intervene and relieve the workers' agony.
