The Karnataka State Road Transport Employees League called off their two-week-long strike on Wednesday.

On Wednesday, 800 staff were on duty and 400 buses were operated. The remaining 1400 employees will be on duty on Thursday. According to officials, buses ply from Belagavi to Hubli, Dharwad, Khanapur, Gokak, Bailahongal, Chikkodi, Nippani, Bidar, Kalaburgi, Bengaluru, Mangaluru, Dharmasthala, Panaji and Hyderabad.

The move comes a day after the Karnataka High Court observed that the workers had chosen the “worst time to go on a strike” citing the pandemic. The court also issued a notice to Karnataka State Road Transport Employees League.

Corona law enforcement: Transport officials sanitized buses as more and more buses began to run on Wednesday. Corona guidelines are being followed at bus stops and will be scanned by Cantonment Board officials from today.

The workers of North Western Karnataka Road Transport Corporation (NWKRTC), along with Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC), Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) and North Eastern Karnataka Road Transport Corporation (NEKRTC), under the banner of Karnataka State Road Transport Employees League, have called for an indefinite strike starting from April 7, demanding that the government implement a salary system as per the 6th Pay Commission for workers of state transport undertakings.
