The proposals for budget 2017 from trade unions of public sector, statutory boards and private sector were collected recently at a meeting held with the patronage of Finance Minister Ravi Karunanayake at the Ministry of Finance. 
Representatives of several Public sector trade unions participated in this event. The proposals which should be included in the forthcoming budget were discussed during this meeting.
Among the proposal put forward by the trade unions were: a systematic training for the new recruits to the public service, revising the retirement age limit, streamlining the public transport system and finding ways to tax the rich. Each proposal was analyzed in detail during this meeting. The factors those could affect when implementing such proposals were also discussed in the meeting.
Finance Minister Karunanayake said attention should be paid implementing those proposals in a manner which would provide maximum service to the public.   A lot of people have been recruited to public sector in haphazard manner during the previous regime therefore, discussions were held to put such redundancies into productive purposes. 
Attention was drawn to occasions where some workers are compelled to do over time due to vacancies.
Representatives from 10 trade unions of National Trade Union Federation representing public administration, health, teaching, education, labor, transport, information and telecommunication and posts participated in the discussion.
