The train drivers’ union has decided to launch a strike from midnight tonight with the intention of refraining from all duties connected to mobilising of trains with Chinese compartments and trains powered by S 10 power sets.

Secretary of the Train Drivers’ Union, Indika Dodamgoda said that the strike would be carried out, based on several demands including opposition against the recruitment of assistant train drivers.

Our news team contacted the Transport Ministry Secretary Nihal Somaweera to get his comments on the issue.

Secretary Somaweera said that the Supreme Court has issued an order to hold a competitive examination to recruit assistant engine drivers.

He said, after obtaining legal advice on the matter, the ministry will meet the engine drivers for a discussion this afternoon.
