Dubey says the dispute between the art director and the production house, Zee Studios, has left about 300 workers unhappy. The workers have not been paid for almost a month and finally stopped working yesterday. When I spoke to the production house, the representative informed me that they had received the bill (from the art director) yesterday, so they would not be able to transfer money to the employees immediately. Estimated balance payment is more than Rs. 50 lakhs.
Workers are part of the Film Studio Setting and Allied Workers Union. According to Dubey, workers’ payments used to go to the unions, which were then transferred to them. But according to trade union guidelines, workers now have to pay directly, which sometimes leads to this problem. “Production houses don’t have their own details, account numbers … workers keep changing. It’s a big set, so if it doesn’t come out in the open, the workers are constantly facing these problems. ”
Dubey said Zee Studios had promised to pay, albeit with some delays. “Because they do not have the details of all the workers, they can pay directly to the union, which will then transfer the funds,” the production house said. They are not denying that they will not pay, ”he added. A spokesman for Zee Studios said: “There is no question of delay in payment.
“The fact is that there was no discipline of documents from the appointed staff. We have actually raised this issue with the Union and asked them to take steps to close this issue. The payout has not been stopped by Zee Studios due to any deliberate delay, “the statement said.
