Port and dock workers will be going on a ‘token strike' for a day on April 6 to protest against Union Government's decision to corporatise the Jawaharlal Nehru port and all the other major ports.

The strike call has been given by five federations of port and dock workers.

“The Government of India have ignored the recommendations made by the Parliamentary Committee in 2003 to take workers into confidence before corporatising the major ports of the country,” said the President of the All-India Port & Dock Workers' Federation, Mr S.R. Kulkarni, speaking at a rally on Wednesday.

The workers have also said that they will go on a nationwide indefinite strike from April 15, if the Government does not pay heed their demands.
