The Railway Services Joint Trade Union says that officials still have not been able to resolve the salary anomalies that exist for railway technicians.

Secretary of the Union, Sampath Rajitha said that for the past week, technicians have been “working to the dot.”

For more than a week now, railway technicians are working only within their stipulated time-frame. This is because of the existing salary anomalies.  He said:

We spoke to the Minister of Transport three days ago, regarding this matter. The Minister agreed to provide salaries to all technicians with the salary scale of the grades MT1 and MT2. We are hoping that a cabinet paper on this matter will be presented today. If this cabinet paper is not approved today, we will have to take strict trade union action regarding this matter.

News 1st contacted the Secretary of the Ministry of Transport, Dr. Lalitha Siri Gunaruwan, regarding this matter.

Dr. Gunaruwan said that discussion had commenced in order to resolve the existing salary anomalies.
