KOCHI: Station masters will hold a ‘strike-proclamation convention’ in front of the office of the Divisional Railway Manager in Thiruvananthapuram on Wednesday in protest against “work overload.”

The All India Station Masters’ Association said in a press release here that the Railway Board had ordered the appointment of an additional station master whenever the line-capacity utilisation exceeded 85 per cent.

But, nothing was being done despite the line-capacity utilisation in the division going up to 155 per cent.
