Solidarity with nationwide strike

The call for nationwide strike by a large majority of trade unions as part of the joint forum, on 28 and 29 March 2022 demands removal of proposed changes in labour laws, sale of public assets and institutions to the corporate sector (banks in particular in the current context) and also demands greater allocation of funds to social welfare schemes like MNREGA. These demands have been supported by a wide range of sectors including coal, steel, oil, telecom, postal, income tax, copper, banks and insurance as well as workers in the roadways, railways, transport and electricity sectors. The demands are in tune with the Higher Education Sector’s requirements of additional allocation of government funds towards public education and secure employment conditions for the students instead of the currently precarious conditions they are likely to land themselves in after graduating from the universities. JNU Teachers’ Association (JNUTA) extends its solidarity to the striking workers.
