Nagpur News: The Industrial Court has declared the strike called by employees of power distribution franchise SNDL from 12 mid night Monday as illegal. The employees are now mulling a reappeal in the court for the strike.
It may be noted here that the Maharashtra State Electricity Workers Federation had called a strike on July 22, demanding pay rise and a number of pending issues. However, the court gave its verdict on July 21 itself rendering the strike illegal.
More than 500 technical employees and engineers were expected to join the strike. If the strike is permitted a large part of the city may have to suffer from power cuts.
