Workers protest for demands acceptance

Scores of Labour Qaumi Movement (LQM) activists staged a protest demonstration and a sit-in for their demands outside press club at Kamalia on Tuesday.

Addressing the protesters belonging to Powerloom Workers Association, Carpet Weaving Worker Union and Awami Bhatta Workers Union, LQM tehsil chairman Baba Latif Insari claimed that officials of Labour Welfare Department (LWD) were siding with owners instead of protecting the rights of workers.

He demanded to implement the agreement which had reached some six month ago between the owners of powerloom and carpet factory owners and their workers regarding raise in the wages of workers. He said LWD officials had mediated the reconciliation meeting between owners and workers but now they were not forcing the owners to implement that agreement.
