Colombo (News1st) – Minister of Post, Postal Services and Muslim Religious Affairs Abdul Haleem says that a special discussion will be held on Monday (June 18th) with the postal workers who are currently engaged in a strike action.

He noted that the ministry is taking steps to address the primary concern of the postal workers which is the amendment of the recruitment criteria. The Minister added that Sri Lanka post has suffered considerable losses due to the strike action.

Convenor of the Postal joint trade union collective Chinthaka Bandara noted that the strike action would continue for a 7th day today and that no officials have responded to their demands.

According to Bandara, the strike action has led to the pile-up of over 300,000 letters at the central mail exchange as well as over 1000 bundles of foreign mail at the BIA.
