Delhi sanitation workers end strike

New Delhi: The employees of three civic bodies here on Monday agreed to call off their strike and will resume work after the intervention of the Delhi High Court.

A division bench of Chief Justice G. Rohini and Justice Jayant Nath asked the civic workers to call off the strike as they had been paid the January salary. The issue of arrears will be taken up on Wednesday. 

The joint front of sanitation workers assured the bench that they would end the strike immediately and resume work. 

"All the safai karamchaaris are now calling off the strike and resuming the work immediately," the bench said, taking into note the submissions of union of safai karamcharis. 

The civic bodies told the bench that salaries up to January have been paid to them.
