Workers allege termination without notice  10/18/2020 19:11:20 

Eight women workers of a garments export company, Chelsea Mills in Udyog Vihar Phase-IV here, have filed a complaint before the Labour Department against the management for terminating them without assigning any reason and also not paying their legal dues.

The women also staged a demonstration outside the company this past week seeking reinstatement.

Garment and Allied Workers Union general-secretary Amarnath Sharma said the garments companies in the area had been terminating old workers, citing lack of work due to the lockdown, but they are hiring new workers at lower wages.
