BANGKOK, June 23 Striking railway workers held their ground Tuesday morning, refusing to call off their labour action despite inconvenience to the public, pledging instead to wait upon Cabinet decision to drop the SRT rehabilitation plan.

State Railways of Thailand (SRT) labour union chairman Sawit Kaewwan said he would await the result of the Cabinet meeting today before deciding to take further action.

Metropolitan Bangkok commuters continued their more complicated and time-consuming travel to offices and other workplaces, troubled by the suspension of train services for a second day.

The SRT labour union has vowed to prolong its national strike pending Cabinet review of the plan.

Before the Cabinet meeting, Transport Minister Sopon told reporters that the rehabilitation plan approved by the Cabinet on June 3 brings benefits to the SRT.

The minister insisted that the plan was not to privatise the state enterprise and that the union protest was unlawful.

However, if the problem could not be resolved, a special committee may be set up to seek a joint solution, he added.

Under the SRT rehabilitation plan approved by the Cabinet, two subsidiaries will be established to run the airport rail link project and to manage the SRT assets. The plan is designed to raise income of the SRT, which has suffered losses for decades.

Commuters turned to buses and other public transportation to get to work, urging the parties concerned to resolve their differences as soon as possible. (TNA)
