Writer’s strikes are a very dangerous tactic used by employers to undermine the wages and working conditions of their workers.
Writers strike are a major concern in India where, despite high literacy rates, the country has the second highest number of writers per capita in the world.
According to the United Nations, India ranks fourth behind the Philippines and Bangladesh when it comes to writers’ strikes.
While writers’ strike is often used by corporations to raise wages, it can also be used as a tool to force a writer out of the workforce.
This week, writers in India began a strike over pay.
India’s writer’s strike has become a major issue for writers.
The Writers Union of India said in a statement that “we want to ask the government to grant us a living wage, to be able to continue working in the country, and to provide us with dignity, security, respect and protection”.
The statement went on to say that the writers strike is also a call for “a new culture of free expression”.
The Writers’ Union of New Delhi (WON), the umbrella organization for writers in New Delhi, also called on the government and the industry to grant them a living and decent wage.
WON president Anand Patil said that they were “troubled” by the government’s response and felt that “the writers strike was not a response to the demands of the workers and their demands”.
“The writers’ union is protesting the government for failing to provide adequate wages for our workers.
They also want better conditions in the workplace, especially for women.
We want better pay and conditions for our women,” he told the BBC.
The WON said in its statement that the strike was started after they “did not receive adequate wages from the government” in the wake of the death of a 16-year-old girl in October.
In a statement, the Writers Union said that “The writer’s union has received no compensation for the time that they have worked under the strike.
The writer’s work is not valued in the industry.
The writers strike has also affected our workers’ quality of life.
We are still in the process of gathering signatures and collecting signatures for a petition for compensation for our lost wages and other benefits.
The government must compensate us for the losses.”
A spokesperson for the Writers’ Federation of India (WFUI) told Quartz that the WFUI had not yet received a response from the ministry, but the union has asked the government not to give out the salary of the union’s workers until it receives a compensation letter from the WFUI.
In an interview with Quartz, a spokesperson for a writer’s organization said that while the WFAI was also looking for compensation, it was not seeking to strike at the level of the WNFUI.
They said that the union was “a community-based union” that was a “community of writers and writers who have written about India’s history”.
The spokesperson said that it was important for the writers union to continue writing in India.
“It’s not a strike against the writers, but it’s about the writer’s rights.
We have to continue the work of our community members who are working under conditions that are not good,” she said.
