"If anyone indulges in disruption of work, such persons would be firmly dealt with," an official spokesman said on Thursday. Meanwhile, the Union Ministry of Labour and Employment has sent a demi-official letter to the Haryana Chief Secretary regarding certain initiatives taken by the government to address the demands and concerns of the Central trade unions.

The major decisions taken by the Centre include fixation of minimum wage at Rs 350 per day for unskilled non-agricultural workers for 'C' category areas, raising it from the existing Rs 246 per day. This is an increase by more than 42 percent.

Ten central trade unions (CTUs) have called a one-day nationwide strike tomorrow against the government effecting "anti-worker" changes in labour laws and its "indifference" towards their demands.
