Workers of the government-owned Arignar Anna Sugar Mills at Kurunkulam near Thanjavur, Tamilnadu, are waging a struggle in defence of their wages.

Till recently, government wages were given to all workers of the Anna sugar mills since its inception. However, after an agreement between the South Indian Sugar Manufacturing Association with the government and the Unions, for private sugar mills, the government was trying to impose this wage agreement on the Anna Sugar Mill Workers, to their detriment.
