The Locomotive Operating Engineers’ Union says that their drivers will implement a 24-hour token strike from midnight Tuesday over several demands including salary anomalies.

Locomotive Operating Engineers’ Union Secretary Indika Dodamgoda told our news team that although Minister Siripala de Silva tried to take action regarding their problems, so far the problems had not been resolved.

Although the   drivers were poised to resort to a trade union action of working to rule on January 23rd, it was withheld since subject Minister Nimal Siripala de Silva gave an opportunity for a discussion.

While the Minister subsequently referred the matter to the cabinet, it was decided at the cabinet meeting to provide solutions to the salary anomalies within two months.

However the Union said that so far no solutions have been provided.
