The sixth round of talks to resolve the row between the employees and the management of Mysore Petro Chemicals (MPCL) failed on Monday.

The tripartite negotiation meet, convened by Assistant Labour Commissioner, ended inconclusively after the management did not agree to any of the demands put forth by the employees' union. The management refused to reopen the MPCL, CITU leader Sheksha Quadri said.

He told reporters here that the negotiation meet held on October 9 too had failed. The union, which had started a dharna from July 18, has decided to shift the agitation to Bangalore, he added.

He said the problems faced by the employees will be intimated to the Chief Minister, Labour Commissioner, Labour Minister and Labour Department Secretary.
