Thai unions reportedly call for strike to protest against govt

Thailand’s State Enterprises Workers' Relations Confederation will stop work from Thursday to pressure the government to step down, said local media.

BANGKOK: Thailand’s State Enterprises Workers' Relations Confederation will stop work from Thursday to pressure the government to step down, said local media.

Bangkok Post on Monday reported that the state unions' strike intended to display their disapproval towards the caretaker government and officials that “serve as its lackeys”.

The unions join the anti-government People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) in its “final round of protests” to push for the appointment of a “neutral” interim government.

However, Bangkok Post also reported that rail operators State Railway of Thailand (SRT) and the Bangkok Mass Transit Authority (BMTA) said they are confident that their workers will not join the strike.
