Such an active movement is essential in India these days, to bridal unchecked capitalist tendencies that ignore labour as part of economy, observed B. Madhava of Centre of Indian Trade Unions (CITU) on May Day, in a city gathering of workers
A few (3) crore labouress had participated in a nationwide strike recently, of all India Trade Unions, demanding their basic rights.
