The situation in coal sector is becoming tense with the decision of the government to reallocate mines to the private companies, which allocation was cancelled by the Supreme Court, and also to denationalise the sector itself.Coal is very important and crucial for the infrastructure and economy of the country and that is why the same was nationalised earlier. Denationalising the sector will be harmful, but the government is moving fast in tat direction.
All the Central trade unions in the Coal India Limited have strongly opposed denationalisation and is moving towards a strike, if the decision is not scrapped. The strike may take place in January 2015, as per indication from the union side. The struggle will be to save Coal Sector and CIL as also to save the economy of the nation.
We fully support the struggle of the CIL Unions to save the Public Sector CIL !
