AIUWFP leads struggle of contract workers at Hindalco

1 May 2016: AIUFWP planned a May Day demonstration at Renukut in support of the struggle of the illegally terminated badli workers at the Hindalco plant. Two of the illegally terminated contract workers, who were the main organizers of the May Day programme at Renukut, were arrested on 29 April under various sections of the IPC but released later.

The badli workers were terminated at the Renukut plant of Hindalco without notice last year. These workers went on an indefinite hunger strike. The DLC intervened and in a tripartite agreement directed the management to reinstate the terminated workers. The management agreed to do so but later violated the agreement and offered to reinstate the workers at Rs 10,000 per month, which is about 40% of their earlier wage.

The terminated workers did not join work and are continuing their struggle for reinstatement.
