Reinstate the Retrenched Workers! .
Sto~ Using Police and Security To Crackdown On Workers and Students!!.
Forthe past one.·~week the workers in this campus have been agitating agajnst the retrendunent ofmore than .
seventy !fa.fai karmac;haris working with Vayudoot. The JNU Administration has signed a new contract w-ith ZEB Pvt. Ltd., without any democratic consultation. As a consequence, Zeb has thrown out the old workers, thus going against the established pr~ctice in JN.u, wherein the old workers are retained even once a new contract comes into force. .

It is shameful that during"this entirely peacefulprotest, the new contractor as weJl as the JNU a~minis-tration have called in the police to crackdown on the protests twice since last evening. More shockingly, .
the,-JNH ~dminist~ation·b·as htiposed out-~f-bounds orders on the retrenched workers, falsely allegi~g that the workers have threatened and physically obstructed the new workers fr:om starting their work. ‘somestudents” for actively supporting the retrenched.
The administration bas also bl’aine·d the JNUSU ·and ‘wor·kers’ agit~tion. Jt took the determined presence of students and teachers to intervene tim~ <!fld again and prevent wholesale arrests ofthe .workers. -.
Throughout this mo’!ement, ZEJ? has repeatedly tried to pit the new workers against the old workers. However, .
the workers, both old and new. refused to fall into this trap. Right from the beginning ofthe agitation, the new workers brought by·Z.EB.·have r.efused to work showing their solidarity ‘¥ith their protesting retrenched work-.
ers. They have realized that they" too are merely pawns to be exploited in the larger context of contraet~:~ali7.:ation ofthe work for·ce.,Out ofthe approximately seventy workers, which Z~B initially brought i~i. twe~ty five stopped coming after a couple ofdays. Yesterday another twenty five voluntarily resigned from ZEB. Right n0w orily eighteen have agreed to work. .
Moreover, Z~b has a track record of deception, which has now been thoroughly exposed. The contractor .
has falsely claimed that the workers he has brought in have b~en working with him for several yarS. This has .
proved to be.a..plain falsity: mo$t ofthe new worker.s bave.been _cn1ployed by Zeb for the first time. ~en .
the workers who had resigned from ZEB demanded payments for the period since when they have been reciutted, .
~tlfe anti wqrker fc=Jce ·of the contractor was exposed beyond any doubt. To begin with, ZEB refused to pav .

vened that ZEB was forced to agree to pay minimum wages. Secondly, the contractor tampered the recruit-ment register, to·alter the date of ioining of many workers in order to make lesser payments. When this .
shameless subterfuge was pointed out, the co~tractor sbockinglv called in police to br·owbeat the as-.
sembled·workers and students. When the police arrived, the contractor had the audacity to claim that he had .
been forcibly… held by the concerned students and the workers. At this point JNUSU decided to contact the .
t~chers for support·and solidarity. Immediately, several teachers came to the Ad Block where the payments .
were being made. When completely exposed by workers, students and teachers ZEB claimed that they.
