Cine workers' strike ends; shooting of TV shows to start soon
The dispute between Indian television producers and workers union has finally come to an end as cine workers called off their strike on Wednesday. A complete boycott was called by the television workers’ association in demand of higher wages for all TV workers and technicians.
‘The impasse has to be ended as it is affecting all, so we have signed an agreement that will protect the interest of both the parties,’ Dinesh Chaturvedi, FWICE general secretary Chaturvedi told IANS.
The worker’s body, Federation of Western India Cine Employees (FWICE) and the Indian Motion Picture Producers' Association (IMPPA) has reached to an agreement.
‘Due to the present economic slowdown, everyone is facing financial crisis and producers are also not exempted from it. So keeping that in mind, we have also compromised on some conditions and they also took some steps which has ended the crisis,' said Chaturvedi.
"The disputes between workers and producers have been settled with an agreement," Sushma Shiromani, theVice President of Indian Motion Picture Producers' Association (IMPPA), told reporters.
With this, the TV workers will resume their work Thursday and viewers will be able to watch fresh episodes of daily television programmes from coming Monday.
The strike had forced the TV channels to begin repeat telecasts from November 10, which resulted with bigger loss to programme producers and channels. It has also brought sizeable amount of revenue loss to many channels as advertisers were against the idea of re-broadcasting earlier shows.
