Indefinite strike by UCIL employees enters third day

Indefinite strike by the workers of Uranium Corporation of India Limited in Jharkhand's East Singhbhum district today entered the third day, affecting production in the company.

Around 4300 workers of UCIL's six units, including Jadugora Uranium Mines, Turamdih Mines, Narwapahar, Bhatin, Baghjata Mines and Mahuldih, are on a strike since Thursday demanding 27 per cent wage hike and two increments, General Secretary of the Uranium Kamgar Union (UKU) Rajaram Singh said.

"The production in UCIL has been stalled completely for the third consecutive day today as no worker has reported to duty," Singh claimed.

The four labour unions -- INTUC affiliated Jadugora Labour Union (JLU), Indian Federation of Trade Union affiliated Uranium Kamgar Union (UKU), Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh affiliated Uranium Mazdoor Sangh and JMM affiliated Singhbhum Uranium Mazdoor Union (SUMU) -- are supporting the strike.
