Mumbai, Sep 12 (UNI) The Indian Motion Pictures Producers Association (IMPPA) has taken serious objection to the strike threat by the Federation of Western India Cine Employees (FWICE), seeking implementation of revised wages, effective from October 1.
In a letter to the FWICE, released to the press here, IMPPA senior vice president Sushama Shiromanee said in spite of IMPPA's repeated reminders, FWICE failed to send all the revised wage of all the members of its affiliates as a result of which the same could not be countersigned by the representatives of the producers for authenticity.
FWICE had so far submitted the revised wages of only 14 of its craft affiliates out of 28. Ms Shiromanee said the FWICE affiliates had already started getting revised wages from January 10, 2007, even before the MoU was signed on October 19, 2007.
The revised wages of that period were again increased from January 10, 2008 and producers have been paying the same. She asked FWICE to let IMPPA know the names of the producers who have refused to pay the new wages as also the authentic list of the balance 14 craft associations and the revised wages of their members.
