Roadways employees’ strike will continue even today



During the state-wide strike of Uttaranchal Roadways Employees Union, there was a dialogue with the roadways management, but no solution was found. MD Ranbir Singh Chauhan had to leave due to some urgent work in the middle talks. The talks have been called again on Thursday.

The Uttaranchal Roadways Employees Union started a statewide strike from Wednesday on seven-point demands, including pending salary payments. About three and a half thousand workers associated with the union participated in this strike. Due to the strike, the first bus service in the state did not start in the morning. However, the roadways management claims that barring striking employees, the rest are associated with bus service operations.

Meanwhile, Roadways MD Ranbir Singh Chauhan called the striking union for talks. Negotiations lasted for about one and a half hours, but no solution was found. In the meantime, the Managing Director had to go through the required work, due to which the talks could not proceed. The talks have now been called on Thursday.

State General Secretary of Uttaranchal Roadways Employees Union Ashok Chaudhary says that the talks could not be completed on Wednesday, so the talks will be held again on Thursday. Till then the statewide strike will continue on Thursday. Roadways General Manager Technical Deepak Jain, Divisional Manager, Union General Secretary Ashok Chaudhary, Union Spokesperson Vipin Chaudhary, Regional Minister KP Singh, Vinay Joshi, Neeraj Chaudhary etc. were present.
