Railway trade unions say that the strike will continue today as solutions are yet to be provided.

The unannounced trade union action was launched by railway trade unions on Wednesday at 3 pm after they found that a cabinet paper that intended to solve their salary anomalies was rejected by the cabinet.

Locomotive engine drivers, guards, controllers and station masters are participating in the trade union action along with five trade unions of the train supervision management service.

The authorities have taken measures to deploy employees who are not supporting the strike action to provide train travel on 8 runs from Colombo Fort to Chilaw, Rambukkana, Mahawa, Galle, Awissawella and Kandy.

The Railway Control Room said that the trains will commence the services from the respective train stations back to Colombo Fort this morning.
