The Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) Workers’ Union said today that they would continue the strike indefinitely because the discussions held with the Minister and other officials this evening were unsuccessful.

Speaking to the Daily Mirror, Union Secretary Ranjan Jayalal said the discussion was held at the Ministry for about two hours.

“There was no positive outcome of the discussion and therefore we decided to go ahead with the strike until our demands were fulfilled,” he said.

The strike was launched yesterday noon by the workers demanding the immediate cancellation of the salary anomalies by revising the salary ratio between the lower level and the administrative level employees from 1:9 to 1:6. (Chaturanga Pradeep)

    Terminate all those (essential services) that go on strike. Replace them with the many graduates who are without jobs.

    And you expect these graduates to learn the job in a couple of hours?

    Although the strike is not the solution, why all are blaming the CEB, their demand looks reasonable. It is the fault of the Ministers for not coming to a settlement and dragging the issue for long time.

    These buggers are trying to compel the govt. to take drastic action, like using the white van tactic. If the govt. changes and MR, Gota and Co. comes to power again there won't be any beds for these fellows to hide under!!!
