COLOMBO (News 1st); The trade union action launched by the Sri Lanka Railway Station Masters’ Association continues onto Saturday (25) as well.

Due to the strike action, Railway Station Masters have refrained from accepting parcels that are to be transported by train and the issuance of tickets as well.

The strike was launched citing several issues including the lack of freight service trains and the failure of the Railways Department to resolve the issues of Railway Station Masters, and complications pertaining to signal systems.

The President of the Railway Station Masters’ Association Sumedha Somaratne said the Sri Lanka Railway Station Masters’ Association decided to continue their trade union action as the issues were not resolved during the discussions held on Friday (24).

Speaking to News 1st, President of the Railway Station Masters’ Association, Somarathna alleged that while the Secretary to the Transport Ministry was attempting to resolve the issues, the Railway Superintendent was attempting to disregard their problems.

He noted that a continuous strike action will be launched on the 26th December since the authorities failed to provide solutions.
