A heavy traffic jam has been reported in the Slave Island area due to a protest by workers of the Ceylon Electricity Board in front of the CEB Headquarters in Fort. They are protesting demanding for a 45% pay hike instead of the hike of 25% that was granted to them.
45% pay hike is much more lucrative than the pay hikes any of the Blue chip conglomerates would give or even afford.

Do they really think that this country is the "Boodalay" of their father and mother to put forward such unreasonable demands. After all, what is their contribution to make these organizations profitable?

All others must ask the same 25% increase..... Go for it !

This 25% is for three years and that means 8.33% per year, government is not telling that. Other public servants got 10%. so why not CEB.CPC and NWS&DB?
