Mumbai BEST strike to continue as meet fails to break deadlock
| Saturday | 12th January, 2019
The ongoing BEST bus strike in Mumbai is set to continue as a meeting chaired by Maharashtra chief secretary Saturday between striking unions and the management of the civic-run transport undertaking failed to break the impasse.
Shashank Rao, president of the striking BEST Workers’ Union Saturday said the committee heard out to their demands but did not give any response.
“Before the report is submitted in the court, I cannot reveal the minutes of the meeting,” he informed.
Over 32000 employees of the Brihanmumbai Electric Supply and Transport Undertaking (BEST) are on strike since Tuesday and its fleet of 3200-odd buses are off the metropolis’ roads, causing severe inconvenience to several lakh commuters.
When contacted, state chief secretary DK Jain told PTI that the committee has listened to the unions’ grievances and a report would be submitted to the Bombay High Court on Monday.
