Sri Lanka Unprotected Railway Crossing Gatekeepers’ Collective launched an uninterrupted strike which began at mid-night last night.

The protest was launched to demand that the Government increase their salary to Fourteen thousand rupees

The Collective’s chairman J. A. C. Premalal told our news team that at this stage, the Rs. 5000 salary increment that the Government had agreed upon earlier had not yet been provided.

The Unprotected Railway Gatekeepers’ Union said that because recruitment has been carried out by the police department the Minister in charge had said that their salaries could not be increased through the ministry of Transport.

There are 687 unprotected railway crossings island-wide.
