Transporters End Strike at Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust: New Trucking System to Be Put on Hold 2018-05-16

Transporters hauling containers to and from Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT) have called off their strike after local politicians wrested an assurance from the four new transporters selected by the port authority not to proceed with their work until the Supreme Court decides on a petition brought by the striking truckers’ associations.
 
After the Bombay High Court, citing government policy, refused to intervene in a case brought by the association last year, it approached the Supreme Court for relief.
 
Local politicians and transporters will also hold an emergency meeting with the port authorities on Tuesday to finalize an “amicable solution” to the issue, said Pravin Paithankar, President of the Maharashtra Heavy Vehicle and Inter-State Container Operators’ Association.
 
The strike that lasted four days affected road movement of containers. It would have paralyzed port operations had it continued for long.
