Three days after the drivers and conductors of Ludhiana City Bus Service suspended the bus service to mark protest, they were on Thursday promised that their salaries would be released at the earliest.
The strike of outsourced drivers and conductors of 50 city buses had disrupted three routes in the city for the past three days.
The staff had been demanding that their salaries be released by the contractor from whom municipal corporation (MC) had outsourced them for city bus service and also said that exact data of the money deducted from their salaries as provident fund, income tax among others, may also be provided to them.
However, after a meeting with the MC commissioner on Thursday evening, the Ludhiana City Bus Employees Union decided to resume the services.
Union president Parjit Singh said the strike had been called off and the bus service would resume. “In our meeting with the MC commissioner, we were assured that we would get our salaries at the earliest,” Singh said.
