Due to lack of junior employees at railway stations, the Station Masters have decided to refrain from delivering parcels from tomorrow onwards, the Sri Lanka Railway Station Masters’ Union (SLSMU) said.
SLSMU Chief Secretary Kasun Chamara Jayasekera said the authorities had failed to provide solutions for the dearth of Junior employees. The union claimed that employees had been assigned duties continuously, violating international rules and regulations.
“Most of the stations require at least six employees whereas only one employee is assigned to all duties,” it is said.
