Actors Ravichandran and Shivarajakumar who head the committee to solve the workers remuneration issue on Thursday met at Ravichandran's residence and discussed the future course of action. Though most of the problems have been rectified the confusion continues as the remuneration issue of two prominent associations of the association is yet to be decided.
On Thursday the committee met and derived a solution for which the Okkotta chief Ashok and secretary Ravindranath has given their nod. The committee has decided that it must not be made compulsary to use the managers, cars and canteen of the Union. It was also decided to cancel the journey expenses and washing allowance for the workers. The shooting call sheet has been revised from 7 AM to 7 PM. After that for every three hours, a rate has been fixed.
All these suggestions have been accepted by Union president Ashok and secretary Ravindranath. But this is not final because, not all associations of the union have given a nod to this. The fighters as well as the dancers association is yet to give their nod for these suggestions. If those two associations also back these suggestions, then the suggestions recommended by the committee will be put before the Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce. The KFCC will finally approve this and the revised remuneration will come into effect.
'As of now the union president and secretary have accepted the proposal or suggestions. But the final agreement can be made only after the two associations accept this' says producer Krishnegowda (one of the members of the committee) to Chitraloka.com.
Will the two associations give nod and what will happen on the 29th of June is yet to be seen?
