School functions hindered due to teacher – Principal strike

Wednesday, 26 February 2020 - 11:29


Teachers’ and Principals’ trade unions who are engaged in a strike are carrying out a protest opposite the Ministry of Education.

They put in sick notes this morning and commenced trade union action based on some demands including transforming the Teaching and Principals’ services into a closed service.

The 18 teachers’ and principals’ associations who are engaged in a protest opposite the Education Ministry right now, arrived at this venue from the Buddhadasa Grounds in Pelawatte. 

As a result the Kottawa-Borella 174 bus route has been blocked at present.
