Postal trade unions claim that there are nearly one hundred thousand letters piled up at the Central Mail Exchange that could not be distributed.

General Secretary of People’s Postal Service Association Jayantha Wijesinghe stated that the distribution of letters have been delayed due to the positions of second class Postmasters remaining vacant.

The Central Mail Exchange is responsible for the distribution of mail in the city of Colombo and its suburbs.

In addition, the Central Mail Exchange also handles ordering goods via internet from clients in foreign countries.

The Trade unions further explain that due to this reason, examination entry forms as well as letters calling for interviews would be delayed.

Postmaster General Rohana Abeyratne stated that he could not comment on the matter.
