Subject: Regarding demonstration at the gate of BCCL headquarters on 16.01.2023 and one-day dharna on 24.01.2023
Reference: Regarding 13-day salary cut of workers in February 2022 and other pending issues
Despite constant verbal communication and assurances given by you, the amount of the salary cut of workers for 13 days in February 2022 has still not been paid back, which shows the dictatorial nature of the management. Moreover, not taking appropriate action on the demand letter of the union regarding workers’ problems is condemnable.
There is a lot of resentment among workers due to your wavering attitude on both the above serious subjects. Ultimately, as mentioned above, the union will organise a demonstration on 16.01.2023 and dharna on 24.01.2023 against the management, both of which will be peaceful. The management will be responsible for any unrest arising during the protest.
