Following the attack from the Left parties on foreign policy, the Centre will now have to face a new front of confrontation from trade unions on economic policy.
All major central trade unions—barring those affiliated to the Congress and the BJP —have finalised a plan to launch an agitation against the anti-people policies of the Congress-led UPA government.
The trade unions have decided to stage rallies and agitations over the next three months. Some of the issues under consideration are price rise, the yet-to-be implemented law for workers in the unorganised sector, FDI in retail and the situation in the farm sector.
The first agitation will be on September 12 when public sector bank employees will stall work for three days. September 19 has been slated as the Anti Indo-US Nuclear Deal Day.
