Work to rule protest by CEB Engineers

The Engineers of Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) have decided to engage in a work to rule trade union action within two weeks.

The Chairman of the Ceylon Electricity Board Engineers Union Saumya Kumarawadu said their intended trade union action was decided upon the non-responsiveness of the CEB with regard to their proposals on executing long-term power generation plants and Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) power generation plants.

CEB authorities show a lethargic attitude to install long-term power generation plant but are interested in plans to buy electricity from profiteering private companies and gain commissions, he alleged.

He further said a letter has also been sent by the union to President Maithripala Sirisena and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe stressing the need of stipulating an LNG power plan suitable for the country and preparing an appropriate procedure to be adapted in purchasing electricity thus generated.

    There is mafia company owned by certain individuals earning profits like no any other through power generation business. JVP was agitating against them in parliament and outside but of no use. This union too silent on such issues may be satisfied with the gifts offered by those corrupts.
