Talks fail, Truck union strike to enter 3rd day

4

Talks between truck associations and the management of JP Cements over freight hike have been failed. Truck associations have decided to continue with the strike. About 2,200 trucks had lined up at Shalughat and the joint coordination committee is working out a strategy to decide the future course of action. Demanding a 15 pc hike, truckers were adamant not to budge unless their demands were met.
