The CEB Engineers and Superintendent Union (CEBTESU) said today that they would also support the Ceylon Electricity Employees Union (CEEU) ongoing trade union action from midnight tomorrow (18).

CEBTESU President A.J. Munasinghe told the Daily Mirror around 200 out of the total of 1,500 of their membership had already took part in the CEEU action and the rest also decided to join the TU action if discussions to be conducted with the Ministry of Power and Renewable Energy failed.  

He said the union consists of Mechanical and Civil Superintendents and could expect disruptions in the areas of power generation, transmission and distribution if the employees withdrew from operations. (Thilanka Kanakarathna)

    All are paid to strike from the money that MR has robbed the people.

    No - this is all sabotage work carried out by the Diaspora

    Strikes, protests are not supposed to disturb the public. It's about time the govt took a stern stand and criminalize strikes and protests that disturb the public.

    A CEB official (top ?) came on TV and claimed that the salaries of engineers at CEB is the same as any other government institution or organisation. In the era of "right for information", why not come out with the figures. The CEB engineers are overpaid and do little. That is why no figures are disclosed. The solution is to outsource all field maintenance to the private sector and the problem will be solved.

    CEB Engineers are not striking and clearing breakdowns, even at this moment.

    Hang on !!, one of the demands of other employees is higher salaries paid to engineers? If so for what these guys are going to strike? confused?

    What is the difference between CEB Engineers and promoted CEB Engineers? Why discriminations to promoted Engineers?
