Mumbai: Railway employees who had called for a nationwide strike on July 11, have deffred their decision and will not go on any strike for four months.

The decision to defer the strike comes days after the government warned the employees of severe consequences, including fines, imprisonment and sacking, if they join the July 11 strike.

The matter was cooled off after Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu had a meeting with Railway Union leaders in which the minimum wage issue will be reconsidered by a committee after examination, according to Indian Railway News site.

The strike was to be held against the recent decision of only 15 per cent hike under the seventh pay commission. The Union leaders are also opposing opening of FDI in Railway.

However, this morning there were posters and hoardings at the Churchgate station on the Western Line which stated that railway workers would be protest on July 11 from 6 am onwards for the mentioned issue.

Either ways, Mumbaikars need to keep their fingers crossed for Monday morning, as given the protests trains services could be either delayed or blocked for certain hours during the day
