Loco staff struck work on 15th-16th July under the banner of the All-India Loco Running Staff Association (AILRSA). The strike was called in 400 crew lobbies in 86 divisions of the Indian Railway’s 16 zones.
On 29th May, loco engine drivers demonstrated in every depot across all 16 divisions, under the leadership of the All India Loco Running Staff Association (AILRSA). This demonstration was in protest against the announcement of the mileage allowance that is baseless, i.e. not based on any formula. The loco staff also raised their long standing demands that have remained unfulfilled.
