TN textile workers seek interim relief

Our Bureau


THE textile workers trade unions have asked the Tamil Nadu Government to come out with an interim relief for the textile workers pending settlement of the wage dispute.

The textile trade union leaders who met among themselves soon after the final round of a conciliation meeting organised by the Tamil Nadu Labour Minister in Chennai on Thursday decided to press for the State Government's announcement on interim relief in the wake of the textile mill management bodies sticking to their earlier stand of not to participate in wage talks.

It is said that the major textile mill management bodies including the Southern India Mills Association and the South India Small Spinners Association which have already made their views known to the State Government that they would not get into the wage negotiations on their members' behalf for want of mandate from their member-mills are reported to have stuck to their stand in the meet also leading to the wages issue deadlocked once again.

The expectation among the trade union circles here that the current stalemate may force the State Government to refer the wages issue to the industrial disputes tribunal with or without announcing an interim relief payable to the workers by the mill man agement.
