The 40,000 employees of the Maharashtra Judicial Employees Union who had gone on an indefinite strike, postponed their agitation, on Wednesday. This came a day after the Bombay high court issued prohibitory orders against the Union’s move.
Representatives of the Union said that they had postponed their agitation out of “deference for the order issued by the high court the day before.”
Judicial employees across the state went on strike from September 13 claiming that they would not return to their daily duties unless administrative changes as suggested by the Shetty Commission were implemented.
The recommendations of the commission, claimed union representatives, ensures better salaries and promotion policies amongst other changes.
They added that their strike had only been postponed until after a union core group meeting to decide on the matter.
