Neyveli Lignite Corporation talks fail; workers to intensify protest

An end to the 35-day old strike by contract workers of Neyveli Lignite Corporation remained elusive as the tenth round of tripartite talks held here today to break the impasse failed to yeild any positive result. Officials of trade unions, spearheading the strike, said the protest would be intensified. Today's talks involving the representatives of employees and management were held in the presence of Labour Commissioner K Shekar after nine rounds of negotiations held earlier in Cuddalore, Puducherry and here failed. The contract labourers have been on the strike, pressing various demands including wage revision and regularisation.
