India's Union Federations Unite for General Strike
Earlier today, workers throughout India mobilized for a general strike demanding, among other things, social security, a universal minimum wage, and pensions. The strike has further significance in that it is the first time that all of India’s union federations have come together in joint direct action under a common set of demands. The growing trend of increased contract and temporary labor has impacted workers in all sectors, and they stood up to say enough is enough! This woman, a member of the Centre of Indian Trade Unions (CITU) helped to stop traffic.
