The MPWU will start their agitation on Thursday to demand their right from the MeECL

Shillong, April 10: The longstanding casual Workers of MeECL under the banner of MeECL Progressive Workers Union(MPWU) will begin agitation from the 12th of this month on account of the stubborn attitude of the Management to restart the negotiation process to meet the various demands which include regularisation, equal pay for equal work, and entitlements such as PF, Gratuity, Leave, maternity leave, ESi etc .

After talks in December the management agreed to release wage arrears and to begin making payments as per latest wage rates. While some have received their arrears, this remains blocked by the management.

Further, the management had officially committed that post elections negotiations will once again begin between the union and them. Yet despite many reminders, the management remains silent forcing the workers on an agitational path that may include cease work.
