Customs unions who are engaged in trade union actions state that the number of containers cleared by Customs on a daily basis has dropped by almost 90%.

Deputy Secretary of the Customs Staff Officers’ Union, Sudath de Silva stated that Customs generally clears around 1,500 to 2,000 containers on a daily basis and that this figure has now dropped to 100 to 200.

Meanwhile, the Joint Customs Trade Unions Alliance has decided to extend their work to rule action in to a strike if their demands are not met.

The Union launched their trade union action on Wednesday afternoon to voice their opposition to replacing the Customs Director General P. S. M. Charles with a retired navy officer.
