THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The proposed 24-hour strike sponsored by the INTUC-led Transport Democratic Federation in the KSRTC from Wednesday midnight has been put off, on the basis of the assurances given by Transport Minister Thomas Chandy at a reconciliation meet here on Wednesday.


The minister said monthly wages will be paid to all employees on the first day of every month and immediate measures will be taken to solve the delayed payment of pension in the corporation. On the issue of implementing  single duty system, on which employees are an aggrieved lot over anomalies and an alleged inhuman work pattern, another meeting will be held in the first week of July in the presence of the minister to arrive at a consensus.

TDF representatives were also assured by the minister and KSRTC management that all ‘unjustified’ termination of  employees in recent times will be looked into and employees will be reinstated in service.

TDF was represented at the talks by president and KPCC general secretary Thampanoor Ravi, R Sasidharan, R Ayyappan and Sunny Thomas. Apart from the minister, Transport Secretary K R Jyothilal, KSRTC managing director M G Rajamanickam and director board member Salim P Mathew took part in the negotiations.
