STRIKE

When we were young there used to be lot many strikes..I have seen many industrial strikes, but never seen any benefit out of them. Then came the time of reforms, globalisation and all those unions dissappeared. But govt organisations are still battling with that..some time postal strike, transport strike, and AI every year has a strike.I dont understand why people lobby for govt job, if everything is so bad there? or is it really bad there or people get accustomed to a life of leisure and freebies so much that they abhor working?..Now Pilots are privileged people in the sense that they have a very extra salary structure...as comparison to other professions in India..and if employees always think of their own self only and not bother about the organisation, then what would be the result?  they will not have a job at all.
Earlier their high salaries were justified saying that they have erratic hours..but in today's world who is not working like that?.Most of the industries have night shifts and people work there for much less.
No other airline gives freebies, but their employees dont even go on strike like this every year.

In this open economy..now the jobs security must go for even govt. jobs...if the people are not satisfied with their jobs, they are free to find employment anywhere else..why dont they do so?

And salaries must be consolidated..no free car, travel, house or anything..everything should be added to the salary and let them use it as they want.This is what happens everywhere else..in other countries.It will save lot of paper work and lot of wastage of national treasure like fuel etc.

Strikes should be banned completely..its loss of production time, money and national loss.

Completely agree with you. Strikes are such a mess.

I have always disliked how things work in India in the Government sector. Needless to say, hardly any changes are seen even after endless efforts of trying and trying!

Very true, I belong to Kerala and every month there will be a strike , they are waiting to find excuses to create one. When will this attitude change?

sm said...

you ban or not ban people will do the strike for right cause.
problem with AI is very different.
the time has come to sell the AI or govt should close the company forever.

Enigma: Govt needs to be strict and make certain laws that any loss of revenue will be recovered from the striking employees.

Chitra: They make the life so difficult for common man and somebody must be loosing something important for no fault of his.

sm:Right or wrong...strike inconvenience many people and sometimes some people loose something they cant get back.
yes they can close it or whatevr, but if pilots are so unhappy why dont they resign and look for a job elsewhere?

WOW thats is supers nuts! You are right strikes don't solve nothing in fact I think they just cause trouble. Our own Govt here in the states is not much better at times out sentors all want spend money we dont have they want to take all kind of money on our time etc list can go on. I'm sure or guessing that India is little worse. Air line people need wake up get pay cut and live like us normal people for once soundds like.

true ..strikes are always a nuisance .They can actually try to chose alternate ways ,but I think in certain places strikes only work to convey and get their demands fulfilled.But as you said ,people cant keep cribbing for everything ,rather they chose an alternate job.

strikes sure do a lot of harm to the ordinary poeple... but to tell you the fact, as a school going fellow i used to pray for strikes back then :)

and by the way, last week kerala stood still in a Hartal

Strikes are a ban. even though SC has ruled it out; politicians indulge in it and cause trouble to people

Bikramjit said...

Agree with you.. Why the strikes and the worst are the Doctors , How can they strike .. what will happen if the ARMY goes on strike Or the police goes on strike ..

There should be a rule anyone who strikes is asked to LEAVE. and thrown out ..

when you are given a job you sign a piece of paper which is your contract... If you dont like then dont take the job ...

Nice to visit your blog after a long time. When I stayed at Jharkhand, there used be strike every now and then and it was disgusting. I don't think strikes work out but peopple still continue to do so. Excellent post.
You are welcome in my blogs.

Yes strikes are 'useless', I don't see any purpose being served with strikes. So much loss in the country's economy........

Babli said...

I hate strikes as I have suffered every now and then when I was at Jharkhand. I don't think strikes work at all but it creates problem to other people. Good post.

I see these kinds of strikes happening mostly where there is some kind of a union setup Renu. Be it Air India or AIIMs. same thing...

Kirtivasan said...

One thing is resigning. The other thing is throwing out of service. In India during strike both these do not happen. Why?

I do not have an answer.

Govt. and PSUs have a culture of solving problems amicably and in good spirit.

Babli said...

Lovely post. I hate strikes and I have experienced while I stayed at Jharkhand. Infact problems never gets solved but it increases more due to strike.
