Strike Called Off

Millions of coal miners in India have called off a five-day strike on the second day after a lengthy meeting with the government, averting power cuts in the energy-hungry country, AFP reported. Five coal unions ended the strike late Wednesday after talks with the coal minister who promised jobs would not be lost during the right-wing government’s moves to open up the market to private companies. “We have withdrawn the strike and a committee consisting of representatives from the unions and the government will look into ... (union) demands,” Gurudas Dasgupta, general secretary of the All India Trade Union Congress (AITUC) told AFP on Thursday.
