Share

Maharashtra State Road Transport Corporation (MSRTC) has finally called off its indefinite strike which started on Oct 17 and continued for four days. Citing the court order, the agitating unions called off their strike and the employees started reporting to work from Friday late night, according to officials. The final report is to be submitted by December 21, 2017. The MSRTC employees, numbering over one lakh, had been demanding salary in accordance with the 7th Pay Commission recommendations.

The Bombay High Court had ordered MSRTC to call off their strike labelling it "illegal". "Therefore, we have now called an indefinite strike", said Dileep, a member of a staff union.

Kasey Palmer and Michael Hefele are ruled out with thigh injuries, while Jon Stankovic is out with a long-term knee injury. However, since then they have not won in the last six games, scoring only one goal as their form has seemingly dried up.

The court said the state government can not be a mute spectator to the strike which has affected the transport services badly.

Few of the drivers of the buses who were heading to their native places in Vidharbha said that if compared with other state transport departments, MSRTC has a poor pay scale, and this is the main reason they had gone on the strike. The state transport ferries over 65 lakh passengers everyday. "This is affecting the public at large, especially during the festive season", the court added.

She further said that while the MSRTC employees' demands were legitimate, the manner in which they went on strike just before the festive season was not appropriate.

The State Government had agreed to an interim hike of 10 per cent, but MSRTC demanded a 25 per cent hike. People were stranded on buses and roads for more than three hours on 17 October, the day the strike began.
