Strike in Coal Industry
Workers and employees of Coal Industry will be on strike for 3 consecutive dates from 19-21st June 2017 at the call of joint forum of Unions in the coal industry opposing privatisation move of the Central Government and demanding withdrawal of closure of 273 coal fields of the country and
immediate commencement of negotiation for revision of wage agreement that has expired more than year back. The strike is also against the contemplation of the Central Government to withdraw the social security benefits that were earned by them through struggles.We extend our all out support to the struggle of coal workers and employees and call upon our units to join the solidarity programmes in different states where coal fields are there in association with our fraternal trade unions.
