Province 1, Udayapur, Triyuga

Workers of the Udayapur Cement Industry have staged a sit-in in front of the main gate demanding a re-appointment. More than a hundred workers from senior mechanics to technicians organized the indefinite sit-in program in front of the main gate of the cement factory from Sunday.

The workers said they were compelled to protest after the industry management did not let them back in work as the industry was shut down in the lockdown period.  Leaders of the labour protest, Bhumraj Rai and Shravan Koirala said that the sit-in program would continue until the factory let them return to work.
