Relay Hunger Strike in India
In 2019, 500 employees working for Hindustan Aeronautics went on a relay hunger strike in order to demand the settlement of their wages, and that their salaries be on par with other public sector workers. The employees had not had their wages settled since 2017, and therefore used the hunger strike to make an impact on those in charge of Hindustan Aeronautics. The employees continued to push for a change in their wages through a rotating hunger strike and other actions through 2019.
