Bus strike continued for the eight consecutive day in Tamil Nadu on Thursday.

Workers of the Tamil Nadu State Transport Corporation (TNSTC), owing allegiance to 17 trade unions, including those affiliated to the DMK and Left parties, had launched the strike on January 4 following failure of talks with the government on wage revision.

On its third day, Tamil Nadu Transport Minister M.R. Vijayabaskar had appealed to bus employees to return to work. The strikers agreed to the State Govt.'s proposal to increase their pay via 2.44 times hike formula and called off the strike.

The Chief Minister stated that numerous demands made by the workers have been met and they should end their strike.

Are Analysts Bullish Rice Midstream Partners LP (NYSE:RMP) After Last Week?
The Permal Asset Management Llc holds 207,900 shares with $3.32 million value, down from 230,000 last quarter. The stock of AO World plc (LON:AO) has "Buy" rating given on Thursday, January 12 by Numis Securities.

On the other hand, with temporary drivers being pressed into service, accidents have been reported from various districts across the state.

"Our protests would continue across the state until our demands are met", said A Soundarrajan, a trade union leader.

The decision also came in the wake of the Madras High Court appointing an arbitrator today to settle the dispute between the government and the employees over wage revision. "The government should respect the labourers", said Irualappan, a member of a labour union.

The Court also appointed Justice Padmanabhan (retired) to iron out the issues between the strikers and the management (Transport Department of the State Govt.). One can deduce the obvious from proposing a pay hike for legislators while thousands of transport workers who earn a fraction of what MLA's do, demand better pay.
