India Jute Mill Shut Down, 5000 Workers Jobless


Chinsura: Another factory gets closed in Hoogly. Shrirampur’s India Jute Mill has been shut down, today; leaving its 5000 workers jobless. The reason is same—owner-labour enmity.

When mill workers went to work like every Sunday morning, today, they found that the main gate is locked; a notice has been put that read ‘suspension of work’. The workers did not get any prior information on this; naturally they got furious with this notice. The administration of the mill has claimed that due to labour dissatisfaction they took this step. Workers have also admitted that the owner-worker relationship hit the rock bottom long ago. All these developments have led to the closure of Shrirampur’s India Jute Mill, leaving around 5000 workers jobless now.
