The metro services in Bengaluru might be affected from the upcoming month because the metro union is threatening to go on strike.
What Is It?
The Bangalore Metro Rail Employees Union (BMREU) is preparing for an indefinite strike from June 4th because of failing to reach a truce with the management. The employees at the metro union are demanding a hike in salaries, flexible working hours and abolishment of the contract labour system.
After the union held on their strike for a month in March, the union and management decided to hold the meeting as per the high court’s decision. Even then the management decided to reject a number of demands made by the union.
What Do We Know?
The management claims that the union cannot strike without valid reasons and prior permissions, but the union disagrees. Despite the arguements, the management promises that they will keep the Bengaluru metro running with or without the union’s assistance.
The public can expect a few disturbances from next month in metro services owing to the disturbances between the management and the union.
