FUTA protests welcome - President

E-mail Print
President Mahinda Rajapaksa today said he has no objections to protests by Federation of University Teachers Association (FUTA) to coincide with the Commonwealth Parliamentary meet in Colombo next week as it will only go to show how vibrant the democracy in Sri Lanka is.

Addressing the editors at the Speaker’s residence this morning the President maintained that he has never objected to peaceful protests by any party, union or group and added he has issues only with protests and marches that have vandalism as part of their action.

He also added that as a policy he does not negotiate with trade unions while they are in to strike action and emphasized that if FUTA wants to resolve salary issues through negotiations it should first suspend the trade union action.
