Head Load and General Workers union, Kerala

imageThis is a street shack / office for the Head Load and General Workers union. I found it as I was wandering around Jew Town, Mattancherry on Fort Kochi island.

I stopped for a quick chat with guy in the blue shirt. He explained that the union represents loaders and unloaders who work at the the local warehouses.

As I’ve mentioned in earlier posts India has several umbrella trade union organisations and this union is part of the AITUC – the All India Trade Union Congress who are affiliated to the Communist Party of India.

Below is a close up of the sign.
