PTI quoted a union leader as saying that the Centre's attempt to prevent trade unions of the coal sector from carrying out the strike on September 24 is likely to go in vain as workmen are keen to go ahead with their decision protesting 100 per cent foreign direct investment in mining. Chances that coal production remains uninterrupted due to the strike seem to be bleak. The central government has convened a meeting with trade unions on Sunday evening and the matters pertaining to the strike feature in the agenda for discussion.

Mr DD Ramanandan, All India Coal Workers' Federation General Secretary said that "A meeting has been convened by coal joint secretary. We will attend the meeting and will not withdraw the strike in any circumstance as government is going ahead with privatisation and anti-Coal India steps."

Five federations representing over half-a-million workers of Coal India Ltd, along with Singareni Collieries and the state-owned coal firms have called for a strike on September 24, seeking withdrawal of the central government's decision to allow 100 percent foreign direct investment in coal mining.
