Gorkha blockade ruins Darjeeling „Tea party“

Economic Times, 21st March 2011, brief overview:

GJM and DTDPLU insist on wage rise. Planters argue the wage rise is a timebound process. DTDPLU enforced a clampdown on he despatch of first flush of Darjeeling tea, demanding minimum wage 120 indian rupees per day. Tea workers also threaten to stop the dispatch of samples of first flush harvest in case their demands are not met by March 24th.
However, industry insiders forsee the end of the impasse. Otherwise it would damage the idnustry after few bad years.
General secretary of the National Union of Plantation Workers said the wage revision process should have been started by now.
