Coordination Committee of Drivers and Motors Workers Unions of North Eastern States (CCDMWUNES) taking serious note of alleged harassment and torture meted out to drivers and motors workers by “unauthorized elements” in the state has sought intervention of Nagaland government. In a representation to minister for labour and employment, the CCDMWUNES convenor Sarbeswar Das stated that drivers and motors workers were subjected to torture for illegal collection by various groups and machineries. Asserting that for such situations, the committee has affiliated registered trade unions in all Northeast states including two in Nagaland viz. Dimapur Motor Workers and Trade Union and Dimapur Land Transport Workers Union, the CCDMWUNES expressed shock that local administration and police have been harassing the two unions who carry out their activities within the preview of Trade Union’s Act. Pointing out that two unions were taken at par with “unrecognized” unions, associations, societies etc by local administration and police, the committee said due to this the activities of this two unions were obstructed and was causing untold suffering to the member drivers, workers coming to Dimapur. The committee with regard to this has urged state government to intervene and allow its two unions to exercise their rights provided under Article 19.
