Central trade unions called for two-day mega strike on 20 and 21 February as their talks with the government failed to reach a conclusion.
The trade unions says that the strike has been called against the anti-people and anti-workers policies of the government. The unions have also sought an increase in their salaries, pointing out that inflation has been rising at an alarming rate. Nine bank unions are also supporting the strike.
The strike has been called jointly by the BMS, Indian Trade Union Congress (INTUC), All India Trade Union Congress (AITUC), Hind Mazdoor Sabha (HMS), Centre of Indian Trade Unions (CITU), All India United Trade Union Centre (AIUTUC) and other such central organisations.
