The discussion between petroleum trade union representatives and President Maithripala Sirisena will be held today.

Petroleum Trade Unions’ Collective convener D. J. Rajakarunaa told our news team that the discussion was scheduled to be held at the presidential secretariat at 11.30 a.m. today.

Petroleum employees launched a strike from midnight on July 24th  based on demands including the hand over of fuel tanks in China Bay in Trincomalee to the Petroleum Corporation, the hand over of the Hambantota fuel tank complex to the Corporation and expedite  the renovation of Sapugaskanda Oil Refinery.

The strike was temporarily discontinued by the The Petroleum Trade Unions as a result of the President agreeing to hold a discussion with the union.

Meanwhile Colombo Additional Magistrate Ranga Dissanayake yesterday ordered Waellampitiya police to arrest the 16 persons, including Petroleum Trade Union leaders who had been previously arrested and  released on police bail, as they had not appeared before court.

The Additional Magistrate also ordered  the Waellampitiya police to arrest the persons who had assaulted the Petroelum employees.
