The strike launched by  the Petroleum Trade Unions’ Collective yesterday, alleging that the Government had decided to hand over the Trincomalee - China Bay fuel tanks Complex to India, ended last night, following a discussion and a written assurance from the Prime Minister.

A decisive discussion was initiated between Trade Union representatives and the minister of Petroleum Resources Development Chandima Weerakkody at the ministry of Petroleum Resources Development last afternoon.

However while that discussion was temporarily suspended, without arriving at a solution, the discussion with the Prime Minister held at Temple Trees made way for a resolve.

Chairman of the Petroleum Corporation Shehan Seneviratne said that the strike did cause disruption to fuel distribution yesterday, however distribution of fuel had had resumed at 6 a.m. today.
