Indian labour organisations meet for new strategy

On February 18, fourteen labour organisations held a one day meeting in New Delhi to discuss the state of the workers movement in India and possible ways forward. While in the last few years there have been incredible struggles like the Maruti, the Pricol and the Anganwadi workers, these either only gain temporary victories or face the full repressive force of the state. The workshop saw that the main issues that workers are facing are low wages, precarious work contracts and unfair labour laws. The outcome was a commitment to support workers in struggle, and those who are in jail, and to better co-ordinate the various labour struggles.
