19 June 2019 12:20 pm

Reportedly, several railway trade unions are preparing to launch a strike from midnight today (19).

The strike is being prepared to launch because the government had failed to implement a cabinet paper rectifying salary anomalies.

According to Lal Ariyaratne, Convener to the Railway Trade Union Alliance, trade unions representing engine drivers, controllers, guards and station masters will take part in the strike.

The State Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation Ashok Abeysinghe said that discussions will be held with the relevant trade unions in this regard.
