The workers of weaving section of Ruby Mills Dhamni Plant have resorted to an illegal strike since all day on June 14, 2012. There was a consensus between the management and the Union, but the workers struck work when negotiation was in progress between the workers and the Union.
This was a partial strike as other sections of the plant were in operation and the management was taking appropriate action.
