AOC Labour Union stir

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, May 28 � Alleging that the Indian Oil Corporation�s recent move to shift the North East Integrated State Office (NEISO) from Guwahati to Kolkata is a ploy to deprive the local people, the Assam Oil Company Labour Union (AOCLU) has launched an indefinite strike that is likely to hit the oil and LPG supply in the region.

The union is demanding upon the IOCL authorities to revert its decision of shifting the office, which would come into effect from June this year.

Members of AOCLU, the recognised union of AOD today staged a protest demonstration in Guwahati.

�The decision to shift the account of the marketing office was taken unilaterally by the authorities without even consulting the recognised union. We fear, gradually the remaining powers would also be shifted to the eastern region, snatching away the power from the local hands,� Union sources said.

As a result of the strike, 11 depot and terminals and the LPG bottling plant remained closed today. The union�s discussion with the executive director, Indian Oil (AOD), Guwahati did not yield any result today. It is feared that if the situation persists the oil and LPG supply would be affected in a few days.
