Port unions' protest

Staff Reporter

KOCHI: The Joint Forum of Trade Unions at the Cochin Port Trust has protested against what it has described as denial of trade union rights by the Port Trust authorities.

The protest was raised at a meeting of the Forum on Saturday.

The meeting felt that a circular issued by the Port Trust authorities last Monday banning trade union activities even by those on leave was undemocratic.

The trade unions would jointly organise protests against this, the press release said.
