Bonus: textile unions stage stir

The Centre of Indian Trade Union-affiliated textile employees’ unions staged a demonstration in the city on Thursday evening demanding timely disbursal of Deepavali bonus for all workers in Tirupur knitwear cluster.

CITU district secretary M. Chandran said the textile entrepreneurs should immediately fix the bonus scale for the workers and it should be above the rates at which the bonus was disbursed last year by the respective units.

Trade unionists said that in view of the stupendous role textile workers played in the growth of the cluster, they should definitely be given enhanced bonus this season.
