Metro rail staff drop in­def­i­nite strike plan

The New Indian Express - - CHENNAI -

PER­MA­NENT em­ploy­ees of the Chen­nai Metro Rail Lim­ited have de­cided to with­draw the in­def­i­nite strike tem­po­rar­ily, which they have planned for this month-end, as the Labour Com­mis­sioner has ini­ti­ated talks be­tween both sides. But union mem­bers said that they would once again de­cide to go on strike if of­fi­cials did not con­ceded their de­mands. “We were in­formed by the Labour Com­mis­sioner that talks would be ar­ranged be­tween us and CMRL of­fi­cials by this week. But we haven’t re­ceived any in­for­ma­tion from the of­fi­cials di­rectly,” said a union mem­ber. “Of­fi­cials have in­formed us that they would be dis­cussing our de­mands soon. We want the man­age­ment to con­vert all out­sourced em­ploy­ees into per­ma­nent ones by giv­ing them re­quired train­ing,” said a union mem­ber.
