An Agreement has been signed with the Nepal Pharmaceuticals
Lab on April 28, 2011. The GEFONT affiliate Nepal
Independent Chemical and Iron Workers Union had
launched the strikes when their demands were not fulfilled.
The GEFONT Central Office called the Management Body
for a dialogue and the mediation was possible by increasing
the workers’ wages by NRs 2000. Other agreements made
were reducing the actions taken against the workers by the
management, the grades to be increased by 5 % per annum,
provisions of advance upto four months, 12 days on duty
leave for the union related works, and furnitures and strike
days wages for the union workers.
