Locomotive Engine Operators' Union ( LEOU ) Secretary Indika Dodangoda said today they had decided to launch a two-day strike action from midnight tomorrow if the scheduled talks with Transport Minister Arjuna Ranatunga tomorrow morning do not yield positive results.

He said they were seeking favourable solutions to their issues relating to salary anomalies, that was promised by President Maithripala Sirisena.

Train engineering operators, regulators, station masters, supervisors and officials of the Control and Rail Supervision Management Services will be joining the strike, if there was no favourable response to their demands, he said. (Chaturanga Samarawickrama)

    MRs disruption game begins. Just introduce white vans, because they'd better fit for vans rather than locomotives.

    These trade unions should learn a lesson for putting the people in trouble by going on strikes half of the year. The government should put a stop to these and sack them all if they go on strike for more than 05 hours. And replace them with unemployed youth.
