FWICE Vs Broadcasters: Producers meet on Nov 17; no change in standoff status

The various producers’ bodies are taking various steps to resolve the standoff between the producers and the Federation of Western India Cine Workers (FWICE) as the strike gets into its second week. The producers met on November 17, 2008, over the issue and discussed further on some of the steps that could be taken to address the Federation’s grievances over wages and working conditions.

Bonnie Jain, MD, Bonnie Jain Productions, who was present at the producers’ meeting, said, “We are also working very hard to see how we can quickly resolve this issue. A few things were discussed and we hope to see some progress on this issue this week.”

It is understood that amongst some of the ongoing initiatives to resolve this dispute, the producers are also working towards the formation of a rate card. When asked on this, Jain said, “We have been working on that for some time now. The broad objective is to bring some uniformity in this at an industry level and get a benchmark here. We have to see how this progresses though.”

The concern that remains is that the matters relating to the standoff haven’t progressed much, and this adds further to the uncertainty on the duration of this strike.

While some of the producers have said that this would take a week, some others are saying that the pressures on all three bodies involved are building up rapidly and a solution would have to be sought sooner. A FWICE spokesperson has said that there is as yet no resolution on the matter, and that they aren’t expecting any until the weekend either.
