Tamil Nadu : Bus strike called off, services resumes after eight days

Tamil Nadu : Bus strike called off, services resumes after eight days”

Though the unions were demanding an increase in wages by 2.57 times, they have agreed to settle down on the rate proposed by the government, as a temporary relief.

A PIL petition was filed with the Court requesting it to bring to an end the strike by transport staff as people wanting to rush to their native places from Chennai would find it tough if the strike prolonged further. Later, the government also issued an ultimatum, asking the workers to return to work, else it will not hesitate to take action as per law.

Mr. Parasuraman said that 95% of TNSTC employees were taking part in the strike in Vellore district.

The AIADMK-backed union, besides some others, had not participated in the protests, reported NDTV. The General Secretary Shanmugam, according to a report in Dailythanti spoke to reporters stating that negotiations with the transport minister were not satisfactory.

Their lawyers told the court that in view of upcoming Pongal festival and keeping public interest in mind, their clients are willing to resume works provided the government gives commitment to hold talks with them on their demand for a higher wage.

17 trade unions and workers associated with DMK and left parties went on strike after the Tamil Nadu Government rejected their pay hike proposal. "Even state's transport minister M R Vijayabhaskar has also talked to the striking employees". However, the bus strike will continue.

The ongoing bus strike in southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu Wednesday entered seventh straight day, officials said.
