Karnataka State Road Transport Corporations Employees Federation on Monday announced two-day strike on February 20 and 21.

 Federation honorary president S Prasanna Kumar, during a press conference here, said the strike forms a part of a larger nation-wide stir planned by the Joint Committee of Trade Unions.

 “Our demands include justifiable transfer policy, effective implementation of labour laws, improvement of service conditions and pension among others. Not a single public bus will ply on the roads on February 20-21 in the state. We will be joined by Central and state government bank employees,” Kumar said.

 He said the strike will be effective for all the state-run corporations from the first shift on February 20.

 “No employee of the BMTC across 41 depots in the city, or the KSRTC across 73 depots, will turn up for work on these two days. We request the public to cooperate with us as the stir is meant to realise demands that will help us serve them better,” Kumar added.
