Assam gas plant workers' struggle

Workers organized under the banner of the Brahmaputra Cracker and Polymer Limited Nirman Shramik Union have been on a strike since January 5, 2011 at the project site Lepetkata, near Dibrugarh in support of their demands. The workers have pointed out that the different authorities — Brahmaputra Cracker and Polymer Limited (BCPL),  Engineers India Limited (EIL), the government of India-appointed project consultants, the central assistant labour commissioner’s office and the Dibrugarh district administration have failed to address some of the crucial issues raised by them including disparity in wages.

 The company was not paying stipulated minimum wages, and moreover, it was paying workers from Assam less than stipulated wages, while paying a bit more to workers from outside the state. It was deliberately inciting divisions amongst workers, the Union has pointed out.

The Union has also pointed out that the companies had failed to provide accommodation facilities as promised by them. The Union has also demanded safety equipment for workers, paid holidays on all Sundays and national holidays, 12 per cent bonus, 20 percent house rent allowance and disbursement of wages within 7th of every month.
