Coal India attempts to avoid strike

In a bid to avert a three-day strike call given by all five central trade unions, senior executives of the public sector Coal India Ltd. (CIL) will meet representatives of the unions. The trade unions are opposing the proposed divestment of another 10 per cent of government stake in CIL, which went public in November 2010. Indications are that the strike (slated to begin on September 23) may be averted, as there has been progress in the talks over the service issue-related demands.
