The Textile and Hosiery Workers Union is all set to hold a workers' panchayat on August 11 at the Greater Ludhiana Area Development Authority (GLADA) ground on Chandigarh Road.
President of the union Rajwinder Singh said the union had been making preparations for the workers' panchayat for past one week, and a campaign had also been carried out and pamphlets were distributed to ensure large participation of workers at the panchayat.
He said that a demand charter would be prepared after listening to the problems being faced by the workers. However, he said the problems of workers were manifold like low wages, infringement of democratic rights, depriving workers from employees' provident fund and not providing identity cards to the workers.
The president said that besides these, workers were facing the law and order problems, as they were falling prey of miscreants, especially on the day of salary disbursement.
