Over 700 young workers employed by JK Tyres in Kachipuram district, Tamil Nadu, have been on strike since 23 March over a new collective wage agreement. Last year a successful strike by these workers forced the management to recognise their union and reinstate workers who had been suspended by management in the preceding period. Since then, management has been unwilling to negotiate on the workers’ wage demands and has instead kept pressuring the workforce by setting impossible production targets. The workers are determined to continue their fight against management until all their demands are met.
