If the Bus Bhavan talks fail, the Telangana and Andhra Pradesh State RTC employees will begin an indefinite strike from May 6. RTC unions have been in discussions for over a year about their demands in salary hike that has been pending since April 1, 2014.
Due to no response received, a lighting strike was launched in the month of March but the strike was temporarily called off as KCR announced a special bonus. But the RTC employees are demanding the wage revision to be announced immediately and it should be at par with the state government employees with a fitment of 43%. Around 1.20 Lakh employees are said to be eligible for wage revision and will be participating in the strike.
With a strike notice given on April 2, the RTC Unions stated that over 28000 buses will be off road if their demands are not met.
