KSRTC staff to go on indefinite stir from July 25 as meet with CM fails - 1 min read

Bengaluru: The crucial meeting between the Chief Minister and the State transport Unions on Friday failed to yield any result and with this the KSRTC employee will surely go on an indefinite strike from July 25 onwards, literally paralysing the state transport system.

The union is demanding for 35 percent hike in the salary and reluctant government offered only 10 percent hike thus making the meeting a failure. Nearly 1.2 lac employees attached to four divisions, KSRTC, BMTC, NWRTC and NERTC have decided to go off roads from Sunday mid night itself. There are about 23 thousand buses attached to the said four divisions together.

Speaking to the media after the meeting, Minister for Transport Ramalinga Reddy said that government is ready to hike the salary up to 10 percent and also assured to fulfill other demands put forth by the union leaders, he said. There is a possibility of holding another meeting with the Chief Minister Siddaramaiah tomorrow over the same issue. Even the proposed 10 percent hike would burden Rs 1,550 crores to the state exchequer, Ramlinga Reddy said.

KSRTC Staff and Workers’ Federation General Secretary Anantha Subbarao, president of Union said that if the government complies with the demands, the union will withdraw the strike.
