Postal Trade Unions state that postal services throughout the country have been disrupted due to their strike.

Joint Postal Trade Union Federation stated that workers attached to over 90 per cent of post offices have already joined the strike.

Postal Trade Unions launched a 48-hour strike last night on 7 issues including resolving inefficiencies in recruitment and promotion procedures.

Federation convener Chinthaka Bandara said that the strike was launched as their demands were not solved as pledged during a recent discussion they had with subject minister M.H. Abdul Haleem.

Meanwhile, the Postal Department has taken steps to cancel leaves of all postal employees to prevent the breakdown of postal services as a result of the strike.

Accordingly employees’ leaves are cancelled from mid-night yesterday till mid-night tomorrow.

However, participating at a media briefing held in Kandy yesterday Minister M. H. Abdul Haleem said that an invisible hand is behind the strike.
