New Delhi: Sugar factory workers in Maharashtra have threatened to go on indefinite strike from November 30 if their salaries are not hiked from this crushing season.
As many as 1.50 lakh workers work in the 274 sugar factories in Maharashtra. The sugar factory workers have raised the banner of a strike as their existing contract for wages has already ended on March 31, 2019.
The unions fighting for these workers have stated that the sugar factory management has accepted their demand to constitute a new committee to review their demand but the action is not yet taken. This has fuelled the agitation and the workers have again threatened to launch an agitation. If this happens, it will affect the sugarcane crushing season in the state.
