Pricol workers win back wages

A group of Pricol workers in southern India have won a court case against their employer who was attempting to take away more than one week’s pay.  The victory comes after a 16-day hunger strike that has now ended. The issue was around the Pricol workers’ one-day strike earlier in the year in solidarity with agricultural workers. The Pricol workers are also continuing to campaign for the release of two of their colleagues who are still serving life sentences for taking industrial action.
