Government adopting anti-labour policies: CITU
Nashik: Accusing the ruling UPA of adopting anti-labour policies, the Centre for Indian Trade Unions (CITU) has asked industrial workers and those in other sectors to unite and show their strength to government.
"All industrial and other labourers should come together to show their strength to the Central government, which is not giving them assurance of security and adopting anti-labour policies," CITU president AK Padamnabhan said.
He was addressing a public meeting here in north Maharashtra last evening.
CITU has brought labourers together and staged many agitations, but government not taken any concrete steps for their welfare, Padamnabhan said.
"The trade union wing of the CPI-M will take out a `morcha` to Parliament on February 23 to protest the soaring price of essential commodities," he said.
He alleged that capitalists, Congress-led UPA, Trinamool Congress and Maoists are trying to create instability in CPM-ruled states, especially West Bengal.
