Members of the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) Computer Operators Union have called off their indefinite strike that started on March 4 after BBMP officials assured them that their pending salaries will be paid by March end.

Palaniswamy G.K., general secretary of the computer operators union said the operators and hardware/software engineers whose services were outsourced to the BBMP had resumed work on Monday.

“The officials requested us to withdraw the strike due to election related work. Some of the workers have not received salaries for seven months.

Even during the State Assembly elections, the BBMP made them work overtime but did not give the extra Rs. 100 that the Election Commission had promised them,” he said.

He added that from Tuesday, computer operators will begin work after approval of voter identity cards and data entry of the government employees list into the National Informatics Centre software for work allocation for the elections.
