L&T to submit list of workers required at the worksite

Work at the HMT casting yard of Kochi Metro will resume on Monday. The labour problem that held up the work was temporarily resolved at a meeting convened by District Collector P.I. Sheikh Pareeth and attended by the representatives of DMRC, L&T and trade unions here on Saturday.

As per an understanding reached at the meeting, L&T will submit to the joint labour commissioner a separate list of skilled, semi-skilled, and unskilled workers needed for the work at the casting yard worksite. Trade unions should also submit a list of workers they could provide as per this requirement. The Collector said that a decision on the proportion of workers to be enlisted for the work would be reached based on both the lists.

Follow-up measures on the labour issue would be discussed at a meeting to be held on February 5. It was decided that the prevalent work pattern would continue till then.

Regional Joint Labour Commissioner Sasiprakash and trade union leaders were present.
