In late February, workers employed at the Tamil Nadu Electricity Board (TNEB) signed a new four year agreement that gave them a 17% wage increase as well as a higher minimum wage – set at US $276 per month. This agreement came only after thousands of workers took strike action in mid-February against the TNEB’s slow negotiating tactics. While the agreement contains significant gains, there are many other outstanding issues including the use of precarious employment contracts and chronic understaffing which is leading to serious OHS issues for the remaining workers.
