Railway trade unions say that the eight office trains which were operated despite the ongoing strike will also be stopped from tomorrow.

The strike was launched on Wednesday afternoon against the delay of implementing some pledges with regard to the correction of railway workers' salary anomalies.

The Locomotive engine operators, railway guards, controllers and station masters have joined-in the ongoing strike.

Although eight office trains were operated this morning, the office workers and the candidates who are sitting the GCE Advanced Level examination faced grave inconveniences.

Meanwhile, Secretary of the Railway Guards’ Union P. M. P. Peiris said that the eight trains which ran today will also be stopped from tomorrow.

Meanwhile addressing a media conference held in Colombo today, Engine Driver Assistants’ Union said that they are ready to operate trains if the authority is given.

Meanwhile, addressing a media conference held at his office today, Finance Minister, Mangala Samaraweera reiterated that the strikers should call off the strike and come for talks.
