Stir over dismissal of workers in Kolar
Workers of the Town Club staged a protest in front of the club office on Sunday, over the unilateral dismissal of workers from service.
" We lodged a complaint with the Labour Department, as the management has repeatedly refused to pay wages and other facilities to workers. Instead of tackling the issue, both manager and secretary of the club have dismissed workers,” said protesters and added that the management has told workers that they will be re-instated only if their complaint is withdrawn. Accusing the management of abusing workers, who all belong to the Scheduled Caste, with casteist remarks, the workers said that they would continue with their protest only if the management failed to act at this time.
