Despite the Madras high court stay, 70% of buses off road in TN


(G.N.S) Dt. 08
the Madras high court stay, a majority of transport workers continued to abstain from work in Tamil Nadu on Monday — day five of the strike by transport workers’ unions. Nearly 70% of government buses were off the road in Tamil Nadu on Monday, said DMK-affiliated Labour Progressive Front.
Unlike Sunday, there was an additional rush in bus stands on first day of the week. Office-goers, school and college students were left stranded in various parts of Chennai. Local trains and metro trains came to the rescue of passengers once again.
Public transport in the suburbs and rural areas were worst hit because of the strike. Autos and taxis continued to fleece commuters. Meanwhile, the Madras high court on Monday refused to vacate an interim stay on the strike. The court has declared the strike as illegal. The court also made it clear that no striking worker can be terminated from service without the permission of the court.
