The Bombay Textile strike of 1982, which was led by the trade union leader, Dr. Datta Samant, and affected nearly a quarter of a million workers and their families. The strike lasted nearly two years.

Women workers participated actively in the strike. However, they experienced a conflict between their role as a participant in the strike and their responsibility towards their families and children.

Members of the RMMS played a role in breaking the strike by bringing people to work.

Nearly one lakh workers lost their jobs and went back to their villages, or took up casual labour.
