Visakha Steel Workers' Union – the recognised union of Visakhapatnam Steel Plant – has asked the management to concede the demands of the frontline officers of the company.

In a representation to VSP Chairman-cum-Managing Director P.K. Bishnoi, VSWU president D. Adinarayana and deputy general secretary V. Dhanaraju stated on Monday that the steel executives were feeling ignored due to drastic reduction in production incentive.

The officers under the aegis of Steel Executives' Association are agitating for past couple of months demanding restoration of old system followed for payment of various incentives for their performance.

“We are marching ahead for commissioning of 7.3 million tonne expansion units. At this juncture, we have to put in our blood and soul for stabilisation of production and productivity,” the union leaders said.

They sought the immediate intervention of the management to resolve the impasse over the work to rule agitation being launched by the frontline officers.
