Mumbai: BEST strike enters fifth day, to continue

The BEST strike organised by Shashank Rao's union that enters the fifth day today, has broken the record of his father, Sharad Rao's strike in 1998. The last three-day BEST strike was organised by Sharad Rao on October 6, 1998, for higher bonus and better medical facilities. The one before that was a 10-day strike organised by George Fernandes in the 1970s, an old-time employee recalled.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On Friday, even as scores of meetings at various levels failed, the Bombay High Court asked the BEST Workers' Union to hold a meeting of its office-bearers to break the stalemate. The Maharashtra government had set up a committee, headed by the chief secretary, to hold talks with the union. Secretaries of the urban development and transport departments were also part of the committee.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Opposition leader and the senior-most committee member in BEST, who has been there for over 20 years, Ravi Raja blamed the administration.
