  1. Good sense should prevail on union leaders and they should agree to the good package given by SAIL management immediately,otherwise things will be out of control affecting SAIL performance. Union leaders should think of eating eggs only without eating hens to prevent permanent damage to a navaratna company like SAIL.Company will have to keep its financial performance intact for a long term to achieve its objectives for serving the society.
