Contractual employees of the state-owned Punjab Roadways today announced to go on a three-day strike starting tomorrow, protesting against the state government for not showing "seriousness" towards their demands.

"The state government has been delaying to address their long pending issues. Even after having various meetings with senior officers of the transport department, it appears that the government is not serious about our demands. Therefore, we are forced to adopt the agitational path," said Resham Singh, the president of Punjab Roadways and PUNBUS Contract Workers Union.

Protesters have been demanding regularisation of services, hike in salaries and implementation of the Supreme Court ruling of equal work and equal pay.

The Punjab Roadways and PUNBUS have fleet size of around 1,800 buses.
