“The producers have been threatening our members and technicians that they will fire them but, we have our unity in place and have decided to stand together and fight for this,” he further added.

Both FWICE and some of the producers had an unofficial meeting few days back to discuss the issue, but could not arrive at an agreeable solution. And following this, the FWICE has decided to go on strike.

“We have 22 associations under us which includes 2.5 lakh members and technicians. The strike will be only on Hindi films and Hindi TV series that will be shot in Mumbai, Konkan and Gujarat,” said Pandey.
