Visakha steel plant employees serve strike notice to CMD opposing privatisation
The Visakha Ukku Parirakshana Porata Committee (VUPPC) served a strike notice to the management of the Visakhapatnam Steel Plant (VSP) on Thursday opposing the privatisation of the RINL. Leaders of the VUPPC stated that employees and workers will go on strike from March 25 if the Central government fails to repeal the approval of the 100 per cent disinvestment of the RINL. Other demand of the VUPPC is to scrap the MoU signed with the POSCO for construction of an integrated steel plant. All political parties except the BJP and Pawan Kalyan’s Jana Sena have opposed the VSP privatisation.
