About 2,000 NLC`s contract workers arrested

About 2,000 contract workers of Neyveli Lignite Corporation (NLC) were arrested today when they tried to block roads and railways, police said.



Cuddalore: About 2,000 contract workers of Neyveli Lignite Corporation (NLC) were arrested today when they tried to block roads and railways, police said.
They are part of 14,000 contract workers, who are on indefinite strike for the past 17 days, demanding regularisation of services in a phased manner and implementation of `equal pay for equal work` formula, among other things.
An NLC official said the ongoing strike has led to a shortfall of 390 MW. Power generation today was 2,100 MW against the installed capacity of 2,490 MW, he said.
