Various trade unions, employees unions have called for a nationwide strike (India) on 20th August, 2008 against anomalies in sixth pay commission, wrong economic & labour policies and inflation. Banking, Railways, Aviation, Insurance and various other sectors will likely to be remained close. Strike is supported by Left Parties, All India Trade Union Congress (AITUC) and Centre for Industrial Trade Union (CITU), Airport Authority Employees' Union (AAEU), Central Public Sector Trade Unions (CPSTU) and other 40 employees' federations are also supporting the strike.

Due to strike many flights had been already cancelled because approx. 22000 employees of Airports Authority of India are on strike.

Bank employees are protesting against the new economic policies of mergers, which have led to job cuts. Lower level government staff had also supported strike because of partial reimbursement in 6th pay commission.

Train services may be also stropped as farmers are also protesting against wrong government policies.

But will this strike solve any issue and what will happen with the private sector employees who are not getting proper reimbursement for their services and suffer because of loopholes in system.

Please provide some solid mechanism to support middle & lower level families of country as they are already facing problem for their regular needs because of sky rocketing inflation. Middle Class Service families are under tremendous pressure and facing problem of survival and you can not imagine the position of poor class.

Our politicians only make comments through media and press but real work is zero.
