Even yesterday, a discussion was held between trade union representatives and the Ministry secretary.
 
But it ended without reaching a consensus.

Meanwhile, the Chairman of Sri Lanka Transport Board, Ramal Siriwardena said that leave of drivers, conductors, and technicians have been cancelled due to the train strike.
 
The train season ticket holders are allowed to travel on SLTB buses using their season tickets.
 
When contacted, the Deputy Minister of Transport, Ashok Abeysinghe said they believe an amicable solution could be found to the strike today.
