ACC accepts agitators’ demands

The ACC cement factory management has accepted almost all the demands of the agitating Sarva Shikshit and Berozgaar Sangharsha Samiti of the Barmana area and acceded to give several benefits to oustees and affected families of the factory last evening.

Local MLA Bambar Thakur offered fruit juice to the fasting leaders at Barmana, thus ending their 22-day-old agitation. Bambar Thakur has played an important role in it

Thakur expressed happiness over the agreement and the restoration of rights of those who were helping the factory earn crores annually by giving their ancestral agricultural lands for setting it up 32 years ago.

Samiti chairman Amarjeet and general secretary Anil Thakur said that the ACC had agreed in writing to give preference to oustees and affected families of this factory in filling vacancies in future.

The factory would also provide facilities and funds for their training, apart from filling up a post which fell vacant by an employee’s death from a member of his family.
