Faisalabad power looms’ workers marching towards Lahore


Thousands of Faisalabad power looms’ workers on Thursday started marching towards Lahore in protest against their employers, amidst reports of violence on commuters traveling on the main highway, a news channel reported.

According to the report, mill owners have not been implementing the Safety Act and were not issuing the workers social security cards.

Last month there were reports that power loom owners accused labour unions of excessive and illegal demands. They claimed that the government had fixed the minimum wage, but the labour unions were blackmailing them.
