COLOMBO (News 1st); The State Provincial Government Trade Union’s Federation says that the Government workers’ salary must be increased by a minimum of Rs.10,000 in the upcoming budget.

The General Secretary of the State & Provincial Government Trade Union’s Federation, Ajith K. Thilakarathne speaking to the media said that although there must be at least a salary increase of at least Rs. 30,000,  understanding the dire situation of the country, the trade union is only demanding a salary increase of Rs. 10,000.
