TAMIL NADU: CWFI Holds Statewide Protest demanding Welfare Measures
The Construction Workers Federation of India (CWFI) held a statewide protest in Tamil Nadu demanding the implementation of welfare measures through the welfare board. There is undue delay in sanctioning scholarship for education, accident and death relief from the board. The other major demand is the sanctioning of Rs 3,000 as pension for construction workers above 60 years of age. The CWFI condemned the anti-worker policies of the state and the union government and opposed the codification of the labour laws.
