Railway engine drivers association state that their strike will be launched as planned with effect from midnight today.

Several other trade unions have also joined in the engine drivers’ strike.

Association Secretary Indika Dodamgoda stated that the authorities were educated on several issues in the railway service.

They resorted to strike as authorities did not draw their attention to such issues.

He said a discussion was held with a ministry secretary today as well which turned out futile.

Meanwhile, railway trade unions charge that there is a plan to transfer railway service to a private company.

Addressing a media conference held in Colombo today, joint convener of the association S.P. Vithana said his association will also take trade union action unless such a move is stopped.

Our news team called the Railway General Manager on several occasions but our attempt was futile.
