The strike started on Wednesday (September 6) after the workers noticed irregularities in the pay slips issued to them on September 5, for the month of August after which 'BY6' ( non-permanent) employees went on a strike. Sources suggest that about 6,000 workers are staging protest. The Jamshedpur plant has a workforce of roughly 10,000 workers.
Workers are demanding permanency of 500 employees immediately and a yearly quota of 700 employees. If the management does not agree upon our demands we will go on a hunger strike from tomorrow," an employee participating in the strike said.
