Union lists demands

The district committee of the National Handloom Labour Union (NHLU) has asked the State government to find a solution to the problems faced by the handloom industry and workers in the district.

The union called on the government to convene a meeting of all stakeholders to chalk out a solution.

Expedite rebates

In the NHLU workers’ meeting convened here on June 8, it was pointed out that delay in disbursing government rebates to handloom products was the major cause of financial problems of the weavers’ societies.

Revise wages

A press release said the union wanted the government to bring all handloom workers under the income support scheme and to revise their minimum wages.

The union also asked the government to announce a special package for the handloom sector.
