One of the big shipping dock companies in Karnataka’s Mangalore port Delta Infralogistics (Worldwide) Ltd illegally retrenched workers from 16 December 2016. The workers under the leadership of AICCTU have launched an agitation against this retrenchment. The workers are lying down in front of truck wheels in order to stop vehicles from transporting dock goods. Workers from other shipping companies have also declared solidarity with these workers and have refused to take part in any activity against the Delta Company workers. The local police is acting in the interests of the Company management by helping to make arrangements for workers and vehicles to be brought from outside. The port management which has given the Delta Company a lease to build its yard in the Port area is now forcing the workers to remove their tents. Thus, the workers have to struggle against not only the Company management but also against the police and the port management.
