RTC workers’ body seeks info on talks

Special Correspondent

HYDERABAD: The APSRTC Staff and Workers’ Federation (SWF) has written to the recognised National Mazdoor Union seeking information on the status of ongoing talks with the management and the government’s response to the employees’ demands.

Primarily, the demands are increased pay scales and regularisation of 16,000 contract conductors and drivers. The SWF State Committee shot off the letter to the recognised union after a meeting here on Sunday. The federation decided to organise district-level ‘jathas’ between November 10 and 15 in all districts to improve awareness among employees on status of demands, said R. Lakshmaiah, general secretary.
