Solidarity for tea workers in India

We have reported in an earlier issue of Mazdoor Ekta Lehar of the prolonged struggle for rights of tea workers of tea plantations owned by the Tata's in West Bengal.

On August 5,  representatives from the IUF-affiliated UNITE, the UK Trades Union Congress (TUC), War on Want and IUF Asia/Pacific handed out leaflets and protested in front of the London Crowne Plaza St James and Taj Residences. These properties are owned by the Tata Group and are located in one of the most expensive parts of London. One night at Tata’s London Crowne Plaza is £230, the equivalent of around 10 months’ wages for a tea worker at Nowera Nuddy, the tea plantation which is the scene of the ongoing struggle.

A protestor pointed out “Tata claims it is an ethical company, but there is nothing ethical about criminalizing workers for simply standing up for their basic rights.”
