Southern Railway officials to hold discussions with SRMU leaders

चेन्नई Chennai (MAS):  Southern Railway will hold discussions with Southern Railway Mazdoor Union (SRMU) on Thursday and Friday to sort out employee problems and other work-related issues.

This is part of the Permanent Negotiating Machinery meetings which discuss industrial relations.

Southern Railway General Manager Rajesh Misra and other senior railway officers heading different departments will hold talks with SRMU leaders, including its General Secretary N Kanniah.

SRMU is the sole recognized union in Southern Railway.

In a statement, Kanniah said the union would raise issues pertaining to employees at the meeting and a solution would be found.

Southern Railway is suffering from shortage of staff, inefficient contractors and lack of spares to maintain trains, stations and railway yards. This is putting a lot of pressure on the employees.

Meanwhile, officials are also struggling with an undisciplined workforce.
