Transport workers in TN reject Madras HC direction to call off strike

Employees of Tamil Nadu State Transport Corporation are on an indefinite strike as employees seek a wage hike stranding thousands of travellers in the state

A few unions agreed to the deal given by the government and desisted from joining the strike.

Responding to the government warning of action, Sounderrajan said it did not befit the former and insisted that it should opt for talks to end the stalemate.

Transport union leaders said they will challenge the court order, which they said is one-sided as they were not heard. "This wage agreement had the highest revision proposed, where the minimum was Rs 2,684 while the highest was Rs 11,361", the Minister said.

A collector, according to The Times Of India, claimed the bus services were affected least in Salem district where around 86% of government buses are operating. In a joint statement, workers unions said the government had held 21 rounds of talks with them in the last 16 months but had not been able to come to a decision on the wage revision issue.

He reiterated that transport corporation employees resorted to strike as they had no other option on the matter.

DMK working president MK Stalin on Friday, spoke to Tamil Nadu CM Edappadi Palanisamy over phone and expressed concern over the ongoing transport strike and urged the government to expedite talks with the unions. They called the strike on Thursday evening after unions said talks with Transport Minister MR Vijayabaskar on revising their salary and pending dues and arrears amounting to almost Rs 7,000 crore did not result in any breakthrough. A large number of people were seen queued up waiting for the private buses at the bus stops. "They may or may not have experience driving a bus". Private buses and vans had a good run as they were over crowded.

Police have been posted at bus depots to prevent any untoward incidents. The commuters complained that auto rickshaws and taxis charged exorbitant fares as the public transport system was hit.

The indefinite strike was announced after the peace talks between the government and unions failed yesterday for the eleventh time.
