Textile mill workers resume work

BS Reporter  |  Ahmedabad 

Textile mills in Ahmedabad might offer interim relief of Rs 1,600 per month to the workers, as they ended the four-week strike. General secretary of the Textile Labour Association said mills such as Arvind, Ankur, Ashima and Asarwa had been positive on offering interim relief and they would negotiate for the 40 per cent wage hike later. On June 4, around 200 workers at Arvind’s Naroda plant went on strike. The plant, which employs 3,400 workers and primarily produces denim fabrics, later saw over 3,000 workers joining the strike, followed by similar strikes at Ankur, Ashima and Asarwa mills in the city.
