Workers in India continue to face harassment

On the back of the devastating effects from the Indian government’s demonetisation actions of last year, workers across many industries continue to face anti union attacks. In a long running dispute, the Labour Court has revoked the dismissal of four Renault Nissan labour activists, though the company is still refusing to re hire them. In a similar dispute, hundreds of workers at PMI Engineering, are finding that even after a major strike, the company is still targeting labour activists and not abiding to agreed resolutions. In a major show of force, over one thousands bank employees held a one day strike to protest against overwork and outsourcing.
