India’s Cement Manufacturer’s Association (CMA) has signed a wage agreement with the National Federation of Trade Unions, which will mean a pay rise for workers at 20 companies across the country. These 20 companies have 85 cement plants and will increase workers’ wages by 33%. There will also be back pay, paid in two instalments, for the last 16 months. According to reports, this is the seventh national-level settlement in cement worker pay since 1989. This current wage agreement will be valid for four years and dates back to April 2014.
