Trade unions seek support in Assam for nationwide strike
By Telegraphindia 06-Jan-2019
Around 300 members from the Centre of Indian Trade Unions (Citu), Indian National Trade Union Congress (Intuc), United Trade Union Congress (UTUC) and 17 other organisations gathered at Gauhati Club at 4pm and marched towards Ambari, Cotton University, Panbazar and Paltan Bazar, covering a distance of 5km.
Intuc general secretary Sumer Sing Gaur said, “All affiliated unions have called a two-day nationwide general strike from Tuesday in protest against the pro-corporate, anti-national and anti-people policies of the BJP-led NDA government. The government is going to destroy all public institutions of the country. It wants to hand over the institutions to private parties.”
Hariprasad Saikia, Intuc secretary, said, “Employees of public institutions such as banks and the railways will join us to make the protest a success. We will sit in protest at Khanapara, Maligaon, Noonmati, Narengi and other places.”
The joint forum of motor transport workers’ organisations of Assam also called a 48-hour wheel jam on January 8 and 9 in the state.
