Large number of commuters stranded due to train strike

Commuters in large numbers are stranded due to the train strike launched by the Railway Unions, Ada Derana reporters confirmed. However the Transport Minister Kumara Welgama claimed that steps were taken to operate 15 trains.

Despite the statement by the Minister it is reported that scores of passengers were stranded due to the union action.

On Decemeber 4 Railway employees suspended their planned island wide token strike planned for the next day for 48 hours giving the government time to address their demands.

Convenor of the Railways Professional Trade Union Alliance, Janaka Fernando speaking to Ada Derana said that they would resume the strike is the authorities do not offer an acceptable solution.    

Yesterday the Railway Unions announced that the planned token strike would go ahead as the authorities has not provided a viable solution despite the 48 hour grace period offered.

Employees working under various section of the Railway Department joined the strike today, calling for the removal of the salary discrepancies caused by the 6/2006 circular.

What is most annoying is the fact that during all the time such shares there is an urgent need to go somewhere to train. At such moments, you always think that there should be less drastic ways otstavivat their labor rights. I do not know .. It's always difficult
