Adivasi tea plantation workers in Assam have been gearing up for an upcoming wage campaign, calling for an increase in the wage of tea laborers to Rs. 350. In 2015, Nazdeek worked with tea workers and activists in Assam to secure a wage increase from Rs. 94 to Rs. 137 for 800,000 tea garden workers. Wages are up for negotiation again later this year, and Nazdeek is providing support for another strong campaign. We have started by conducting trainings with women Adivasi tea workers on campaigning and advocacy tools. We stand with Adivasi tea laborers and join their call for an increased wage of Rs. 350!
