The Textile Labour Association was founded on December 4, 1917, by ‘Motaben’ Anasuya Sarabhai and mentored at the time by Mahatma Gandhi. At that time the association was known as the Majoor Mahajan Sangh. One hundred years later, the association is still going strong and the association is currently supporting textile labourers to deal with the repercussions of the Goods and Services Tax (GST).

The function was a small affair and was hosted by the founder of Sewa, Ela Bhatt. Guests were informed on the history of the association and discussed the current climate in India regarding textiles and their production.

The Textile Labour Association came into existence when, in 1917, a group of textile labourers held a non-violent protest organised under Bapu’s leadership.

Textile workers in Ahmedabad were demanding a 50 percent increase in salary from factory and mill owners as a plague bonus and a long string of non-violent protests ensued which became known as “ek tek”, “one resolve”.

Finally, the mill owners agreed to the protesters’ demands and, following their victory, the association was created.
