The strike and settlement go hand in hand

Even after the strike came to an end it was followed by yet another strike! This time it was the sound recorders, who are still not happy with their salary hike. However, unlike the earlier one this strike was short lived.

On behalf of the workers and producers, FWICE (Federation of Western India Cine Employees) signed an agreement on Wednesday which had all the clauses and the increased pay of the people. According to the sources, soon after the strike got over yesterday, there were some fractions of people (sound recorders) who did not agree with what their leaders had signed. Objecting this, all the sound recorders had a meeting where they decided to keep mum till their demands were met.
With so many losses already being endured by the small screen industry, producers are worried about the strike. Ratna Sinha, the producer of Babul Ka Aangan, was hoping the strike to get over by the end of the day. He says, "We've suffered enough losses, I just hope it gets over very soon."
Suhas Rane, one of the sound recorders says, "It all happened due to some misunderstandings between group leader and the sound recorders." Sound recorders demanded for a hike raising their wages to Rs.51, 000 on a monthly basis, which has now been settled at 48,000 per month including Rs. 100 as the conveyance of each day. For the boom man, it has increased to Rs. 21, 000 which too includes conveyance charges of Rs. 100 daily.

There are two basic units in the television industry; 'Cameras' which capture the visuals and second are the 'Recorders' that capture sound. Sound recorders hence play a very important role in the industry.

With sound recorders calling off their strike, shooting are most likely to start by today evening or tomorrow. This will further enable the channel to keep their viewers entertained from Monday with brand new episodes.
