The Railway Graded Officers Trade Union Federation said that it would take a decision about the ongoing strike after they receive the injunction in writing.

Convener of the Federation Janaka Fernando stated that his federation has not received a court order so far.

Colombo District Magistrate Sujatha Alahapperuma who examined a petition filed by three railway commuters issued an injunction on the strikers by preventing the strike until the 24th of this month.

However railway commuters faced many inconveniences for the 3rd day today due to the train strike.

Police protection has been provided to Railway Stations as railway workers locked and deserted stations.  Outsiders were also sighted using the Fort Railway Station as its entry gates were isolated and ticket counters were closed.

However the injunction was issued on 26 railway workers including representatives from the Railway Graded Officers Federation.

Meanwhile Convener of the Federation Janaka Fernando stated that the Federation’s executive committee agreed to take a decision when the injunction is received in writing by them.

However Locomotive Operating Engineers Association does not support the ongoing strike.

General Secretary of the Association K.A.U. Kontha-singhe told our news team that they were able to operate nearly 80 out of 400 daily turns during this morning.
