Welcome to RIKKS

RIKKS (Rourkela Ispat Karakhana Karmachari Sangh) affiliated to BMS (Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh) is active since 06.01.1971 with registration no: 674 & affiliation no: O/4 ('O' for Odisha) in RSP. Thengadiji the founder of BMS built up the ideological basis of it right from its inception. When political trade unions misused workers of our country for their power politics, BMS was formed with the slogan “apolitical trade union” (above politics). It believed in genuine trade union activity inculcating National spirit in the minds of workers.Instead of the Communist theory of class conflict it believed in the concept of industrial family. Hence instead of the Communist slogan; workers of the world unite; it said-workers, unite the world. The cyclic concept of Nationalise the labour, labourise the industry, industrialise the Nation gives the idea of what BMS is striving for in the labour sector. Viswakarma Jayanthi day was decided to be celebrated as National Labour Day. The apolitical character of the organisation was kept on from its inception till now without dilution.Read more
