As TN government intervenes FEFSI calls of strike

As Tamil Nadu government intervened and discussions were held in the presence of workers and producers, the strike by FEFSI has been called off.

There was issue between Film Employees Federation of South India (FEFSI) and Tamil movies producer council regarding salary revision.  Since there was no amicable solution, FEFSI resorted to strike.

Efforts by Producer Council were in full swing to start a new workers federation.

Tamil Nadu government decided to bring an end to the workers strike which continued for one month. 

Following this, a three sided discussion was held in the Chennai Chief Secretariat headed by workers welfare minister Chellapandian.  Discussions were held with producer council head SA Chandrasekar and artistes association head Saratkumar MLA.  Next level discussions were held with FEFSI general secretary Siva, and salary committee head Ameer.

FEFSI strike called off:

The discussion which began at 3.30 in the afternoon ensued till 7.30 in the night. At last, decision was arrived at in the discussion. Minister Chellapandian commented ‘To arrive at solution for the issue, as per order passed by Chief Minister Jayalalithaa, we called both sides for discussion.’

Both the sides placed their demands and the justice in their demands.  FEFSI head Siva announced that the strike is called off adhering to government’s order.

Action to be taken if new federation is begun:

‘I did not receive any report regarding commencement of new workers federation.  Also, producer council did not convey any such thing.  We will take action if we receive any complaint.’

‘Both the sides have promised full cooperation to the discussion regarding salary revision which is to be held before workers welfare head.  The discussion would be held soon.’ 

‘In FEFSI there are 23 unions.  Demands for 15 unions have been met.  Soon discussion would be held for salary revision of rest of 8 unions.’

Tamil Nadu government’s press note:

Tamil Nadu government released a press note last night regarding FEFSI workers’ salary revision.

Discussions were held yesterday to meet with the demands of FEFSI workers.  Chellapandian who headed the discussion, gave advice to both the sides.

FEFSI workers agreed to call of strike and resume shooting schedules and producer council agreed to give full cooperation to the three sided discussion.
