Workers attached to the Jaya Container terminal of the Ports Authority have commenced a strike.

They claim that the relevant authorities are not paying them the incentive allowance, which is offered by the shipping firms.

The workers who are involved in unloading containers from ships which arrive at the port are usually paid an incentive allowance of 2 to 4 dollars based on the size of the container.

The amount is added to the wages of the workers who are involved in unloading containers.

However, the workers of Jaya Container Terminal claim that the authorities have halted such incentives which they are entitled to.

Member of the Ports Authority Jaya Container Terminal’s Workers’ Association Upali Weerasekara stated that all workers attached to all trade unions have joined the strike.

When our news team enquired from the Chairman of the Ports Authority L. Panagoda, he stated that not all workers have joined the strike.

He also stated that discussions are underway to resolve the matter.
