Power loom job working units to strike

Owners of the power loom job working units in the district have decided to close down their units on June 13 as mark of protest against the sudden cut in job work charges given by the textile units for the production of fabrics.

R. Velusamy, president of the Tirupur District Power loom Job Working Units Owners Association, told The Hindu that the job working charges were raised by 27 per cent in 2014 as per the agreement reached upon between the job working units and the textile units that give job works for production of fabrics. “But, the job work charges have been suddenly slashed recently by the textile units to the tune of 20 per cent, which has affected the viability of our member units,” he said. The strike would be held from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on June 13
