Tata tea plantations hiding workers conditions

An international International Union of Food (IUF) workers fact-finding team has been denied access to an Assam plantation in north east India. The IUF team was requested by trade unions in Assam to investigate the recent deaths of three workers.

The Powai estate is one of the world's largest tea-processing factories. It employs some 1,800 permanent and 1,200 temporary workers.
