The government, semi-government and private sector trade unions collective has called off the countrywide strike scheduled for tomorrow after the Prime Minister’s statement in Parliament today, Ceylon Teachers’ Union General Secretary Joseph Stalin said.

He said the decision was taken after their requests to annul some of the proposals made in the 2016 Budget was accepted by Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe.

However, Mr. Stalin said the Bankers’ Union has said it would carry out their strike as planned. (Piyumi Fonseka)
