GOA: In all, 142 workers from a private chemical manufacturing company at the Bicholim industrial estate have been served notices of retrenchment.
On Friday, workers who had gathered outside the factory, told reporters that the “notices were issued without prior intimation”. They also said they have petitioned the chief minister and the labour commissioner. “We’ve always cooperated with the company and even worked tirelessly during the lockdown,” they said.
Harish Pawaskar, an official from the chemical company, said they have taken the decision only after following all legal procedures and “this issue is lying with the labour commissioner”.
