‘Withdraw ultimatum’

Kathmandu, August 15:

Nepal Independent Chemical and Iron Workers’ Union (NICIWU), Unilever Nepal Ltd, has urged the All Nepal Workers’ Association (ANWA), Makwanpur branch to withdraw its ultimatum and 15-point demands. NICIWU has said, “though some of the ANWA’s demands are positive for workers welfare, its ultimatum to clo-se down the industry — if the demands are not fulfilled — has no logic. Trade union and Unilever Nepal has signed an accord for two years and the union is committed to the accord.” Unil-ever management has said that most of ANWA’s demands cannot be fulfilled since they are political.
