Kanan Devan Hill Plantations Settles Disputes with the Workers

Workers of Kanan Devan Hill Plantations (KDHP) ended their strike after nine days, with the company agreeing to their demand for higher bonus, but the repercussions of it are now being felt in other tea estates in Kerala. The woman workers who led the strike at the large tea plantation company in south India had kept trade union leaders away, accusing them of being hand-in-glove with the management. The workers of other tea companies are also threatening to go on agitation without the assistance of trade unions. Harrisons Malayalam (HML), another major tea company having around 6,000 hectares and more than 7,000 workers, has now become the prime target. HML, which suffered a INR 350 million loss in 2014 to 2015, had declared the statutory bonus of 8.33%. AVT is another big tea company with estates in Kerala. Though the KDHP management had announced a 10% bonus, after intense negotiations with Chief Minister Oommen Chandy, it was forced to pay an 8.33% statutory bonus and 11.67% as ex-gratia. The total outgo from 20% bonus and ex-gratia payment should be around INR 100 million. Due to the agitation, the company suffered a loss of INR 300 million.
