Thiruvananthapuram: To curb the strike announced by the KSRTC unions, the state government on Thursday decided to impose a dies-non. The unions had announced that they will hold a strike from midnight on Thursday citing the lacklustre approach of the authorities in revising the pay scale.

Imposing a dies-non implies that the wage of the striking days would be cut if the workers do not turn up. It falls under the Essential Services Act.

The Left-wing and Right-wing unions have called for strikes on Nov 5 and 6 as the talks held in the presence of Minister Antony Raju on Wednesday failed to find a solution.

INTUC backed TDF called for strikes on Nov 5 and 6. KSRTEA and BMS have issued notices for protesting on Nov 5. The bus services will be interrupted.
