Railway workers across India threatened to strike beginning Wednesday, September 19. The National Joint Council of Action (NJCA) union plans to begin a strike for all zonal railways over working conditions and hazard pay. Negotiations with the government have led to an increase in the minimum pay, though agreements on other demands are pending. As of Wednesday morning (local time), the NJCA has not announced how long the railway workers intend to strike. Transportation disruptions are likely for the duration of the strike.
Individuals in India are advised to monitor the situation, confirm the status of their train, and anticipate transportation delays along railways.
