To protest against inaction of Centre to look into their problems
Nine major trade unions, including the INTUC, AITUC and CITU, have called for an all-India strike by workers on September 7 to protest against “inaction” of the Union government to look into their genuine problems.
The unions said some federations of bank employees unions too would participate in the dawn-to-dusk strike.
AITUC general secretary and MP Gurudas Dasgupta warned that the unions would launch a “march to Parliament” in February during the budget session if the UPA government failed to meet their demands.
CITU president M.K. Pandhe appealed to all workers to make the strike a success.
