The Kerala State Road Transport Corporation employees raise their voice against the organization, the main reason behind the protest is late payment in their salaries, even DA is not paid yet.
The stir was called to protest the non-fulfillment of various demands, including timely payment of salaries, pay revision and disbursement of pending installments of dearness allowance.
INTUC-affiliated Transport Democratic Federation (TDF), among the two trade unions approved by the KSRTC, called for the protest after talks between its president Thampanoor Ravi and the KSRTC officials on Friday bore no result.
“The finance minister, who had announced the formation of a bank consortium that would help pay salaries and pension on time and make KSRTC a profitable organization within two years, has reduced the fund of Rs 20 crore provided by the government to KSRTC. This move has delayed the distribution of salaries and pension. The amount deducted from the government share towards the payment of salaries of KSRTC employees in September was provided only on 11 October. And the salaries were disbursed in two installments. 3000 thousands of buses introduced by the government in the last three years. According to reports only 101 buses have been manufactured so far.
it was the first time this year that no new buses were introduced during the Sabarimala season, blaming the LDF government for destroying the corporation that was functioning smoothly during the UDF government’s tenure. .AS per news Such strikes will only constrain revival measures being adopted and cut down revenue collection.
