On 14th Aug, 2017, train drivers raised their demands and held demonstrations at the crew lobbies and divisions of various zones under the leadership of the All India Loco Running Staff Association (AILRSA). The decision to hold these demonstrations was taken in a meeting held by the central executive committee in Nagpur between 3-4 Aug, 2017. 48 representatives from the 16 zones of Indian Railways participated in the meeting. In the meeting, workers decided to hold massive dharnas to fight for their demands in the crew lobbies and various zones of the railways on 24th Aug.
More than 15,000 workers, i.e. about 80% of the work force of the state owned Korea Railroad Corporation (Korail) went on strike on December 9, protesting against steps that are being widely perceived as preliminary to privatizing the rail service – a plan by the management to sell off to private hands the most profitable slice of its business.
