The employee unions are further increasing pace in the ongoing protest against the privatization of the Visakhapatnam steel plant.Currently, the employee unions are preparing for the strike.
The unions decided to give a strike notice to the Visakhapatnam Steel plant management on the 14th of this month.Against this backdrop, the employee unions have decided to go on strike from the 30th of this month.
In addition, they demanded an increase in the wages of the contract workers.
The employee unions had earlier called off a strike in early May to protest against the privatization of the Visakhapatnam steel plant.
At that time, the employee union representatives said that they had decided to postpone the strike in the wake of the severity of the second wave of corona in the country and decided to produce medical liquid oxygen without any disruption.It is a known fact that Covid hospitals in the country are getting a huge supply of oxygen from the Visakhapatnam steel plant.
For months, workers, political parties and civil society groups have been protesting on a large scale against the decision of the union government.The employee unions, which had announced a temporary halt to the protest due to the corona, are once again becoming active.
