Wage hike cry by hill, plains tea unions

(From the telegraph)
 Siliguri, Jan. 8: A conglomeration of tea garden trade unions has demanded that the daily wage of workers be increased from Rs 95 to Rs 322 when the new wage revision comes into effect on April 1.The reason the unions are citing for the wage raise is the rise in costs of daily commodities.Tea garden workers in both the Darjeeling hills and the plains get Rs 95 a day at present, according to the agreement reached between trade unions and planters’ organisations in 2011.The wage agreement is for three years, so the new deal should come into effect on April 1 this year.Among the unions that have demanded the over-three-fold raise, is the Darjeeling Terai Dooars Plantation Labour Union, which is affiliated to the Gorkha Janmukti Morcha, and the Progressive Tea Workers Union of the Akhil Bharatiya Adivasi Vikas Parishad. The Morcha union has units in the 70-odd gardens in the hills. read more
