For weeks, the daily wage workers of 24 crafts of Telugu cinema have been demanding a hike of 30% in their daily wages. As the film industry could not fulfil their demands, the workers imposed a deadline and they moved with a strike today. The Telugu Film Federation issued a strike notice and all the film shoots of Telugu cinema are now halted.
And, they committed strongly not to attend the shoots. This morning, they reached the Junior Artists Association and protested outside the office. During the time, they stopped the vehicles that were travelling to attend for shoots.
This is going to be a great threat for the Film Federation all over. The members of the producers council are likely to meet in the Film Chamber and discuss the issue. The workers are going to be met by the producers council members today or the day following.
