Strike in Ordnance Factories
The trade unions have raised a number of demands. Most of the demands are common with other departments of the Government of India. However, there are certain demands specific to the ordnance factories such as payment of time wages to the piece workers, grant of 30 days Earned Leave to Industrial Workers who have opted Leave under the Factories Act, 1948, co-relation of piece work rates in the revised 6th Central Pay Commission (CPC) pay scales etc.
Production in ordnance factories was affected adversely due to poor attendance at various shop level. Overall attendance in the organization on the days of the strike was 59.28% (7.9.2010), 23.27% (28.2.2012), 30.19% (20.2.2013) and 28.69% (21.2.2013). The production come down to less than 50% (7.9.2010), less than 20% (28.2.2012) and less than 25% (20.2.2013 & 21.2.2013) due to poor attendance.
The demands are being examined at appropriate levels.
