Mixed response likely in Trade Unions' Bharat Bandh tomorrow

Following a bandh call by central trade unions, India is bracing for a nation-wide strike tomorrow (Wednesday, Sept 2). The trade unions have been protesting against NDA government's proposed Bills amending labour laws, the Contract Act, the Electricity Act and Factory Act. Transport unions of the country too have been protesting over the proposed Road Transport and Safety Bill. Meanwhile, employees of public sector banks and government-owned non-life insurance companies also announced that they would support the bandh on Wednesday.

Government today said it does not see much impact on essential services because of the decision of 10 central trade unions to go ahead with one-day nationwide strike tomorrow even as it appealed to them to withdraw the call in workers' and the nation's interest.
It also indicated that talks with trade unions will continue even if they go on nationwide strike tomorrow where 15 crore formal sector workers will participate in the action against the changes in labour laws.

Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh (BMS) initially in favour of strike but later pulled out saying the government needed to be given time to fulfil its promises on the basic demands. The National Front of Indian Trade Unions will also stay out.
Railway employees are not participating in the strike.
Central Govt. warned the employees about the consequences of taking part in strike which includes pay cut, break in service and other penal measures.
In the absence of BMS, many part of the country may not have any impact on tomorrow's strike.
