CHENNAI: Major transport unions announced that they are firm in their decision to go on a strike from May 15 after the talks with the government on Friday failed.

However, the state government appealed to the unions not to resort to strike considering the financial situation of the government. The government promised to issue an order allocating Rs 500 crore for gratuity and provident fund for the retired employees. The government also said the DA arrears from January to March 2016 and July to November 2016 would be paid immediately and an amount of Rs 250 crores would be sanctioned for the purpose. The other benefits for the workers would be given after the financial situation of the government is improved, an official press release here said.

 

During the talks held today transport minister M.R. Vijayabaskar had approved the sanctioning of Rs 750 crores following the demand of transport unions at the meeting held on Fridyay.
