Railway Technical Services Trade Union Committee to launch token strike.

The Railway Technical Services Trade Union Committee has decided to engage in a 48-hour token strike from 4pm on Tuesday (29).

Chairman of the committee P. Sampath Rajitha said the strike is based on three demands including salary increments.

Deputy Minister of Transport Ashok Abeysinghe said it is unfair to engage in the strike when an agreement was reached to grant the demands of the trade unions.

A spokesman for the Railway Locomotive Engine Drivers' Union said none of the railway employees engaged in operations will be participating in the token strike and that only employees within running sheds will engage in the union action.
