The Bombay High Court has issued an order to withdraw the strike by the Maharashtra State Road Transport Corporation (MSRTC), calling it ‘illegal’ and immediately withdraw it with immediate effect. The employees of MSRTC were on strike from four days (October 16) demanding wage hikes. Transport Minister Diwakar Rao and MSRTC officials had tried to negotiate with the unions who failed.
After interacting with the union, Raote had said that the union officials had demanded the highest salary increase so far which could not be considered by the MSRTC. He also asked the employees to end the strike.
