The joint postal trade union front says that distribution of mail and packages that  accumulated at the central mail exchange and post offices islandwide, commenced at midnight.

The co-convener of the front, Chinthaka Bandara stated that with the 48 hour strike coming to an end last night, distribution commenced accordingly.

Postal service employees engaged in a 48 hour token strike which began on Monday at midnight,  basing several demands including objecting to hotels being established in buildings that have historical value and have housed post offices.

It was reported that as a result over 2 million letters accumulated at the central mail exchange and post offices islandwide.

Meanwhile the co convener of the Joint postal trade union front noted that if a solution is not provided for the prevailing issues by next week,a continuous strike action would be launched  from 26th of June.
