Indian state of Tamil Nadu enters 7th day

The move came after the Madras High Court appointed an arbitrator to settle the workers' wage dispute with the government.

As per the reports received, the transport workers are demanding a 2.57 times raise in their wages as compared to the salaries of the drivers.

The employees are in fact set to intensify protests after the state government issued notices to almost 60,000 workers for abstaining from work on 5 and 6 January, reports The Times of India.

Not refusing to back down, the state government had roped in additional drivers and conductors to resume the stalled buses.

A day after the High court appealed to the conscience of the trade unions to call off their strike in the view of the harvest festival of Pongal, the unions on Thursday morning filed a memorandum offering to resume work if the government agrees to its conditions.

Commuters breathed a sigh of relief as government buses began plying on 12 January, following the withdrawal of the statewide bus strike by Tamil Nadu Transporters Union.

The AIADMK-backed union, besides some others, had not participated in the protests. More than 1 lakh people of the state transport department are on strike and this has crippled the main transportation medium for the state and the city. The letter was written in part due to IT employees being beneficiaries of public transport. The strike has affected the passengers across the state.

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. For some who have even retired, the struggle has been a long one.
