Coal India trade unions call off strike

The labour unions of state-run Coal India have called off a strike planned for Monday in protest against a stake sale and opening up of the industry, setting the stage for Prime Minister Narendra Modi to press ahead with energy reforms. Coal India holds a monopoly on commercial coal mining, accounting for more than 80 per cent of the country's total production. Union leaders met a senior coal ministry official on Saturday and the strike was postponed until a meeting with the power and coal minister, said S.Q. Zama, secretary general of the Indian National Mineworkers Federation.
