Five-year deal finalized by Bipartite Wage Negotiation Committee for 12 major ports

Some 36,000 port and dock workers at the 12 major ports owned by the Centre will get a 10.6 per cent wage hike for a five-year period beginning January 1, 2017.

The wage increase was finalised recently by the Bipartite Wage Negotiation Committee comprising representatives from the Indian Ports Association (IPA) and the five workers’ unions at major port trusts.

“A wage increase of 10.6 per cent is a very fair and reasonable settlement in the present scenario when the port trusts are going through a tough time,” T Narendra Rao, General Secretary, Water Transport Workers’ Federation of India, one of the five worker’s federations that were part of the negotiations, said.
