The Teachers' and Principals' Trade Union have decided to launch a 24-hour countrywide token strike on March 13 demanding an increase to their salaries while resolving the salary anomalies, Ceylon Teachers Union (CTU) General Secretary Joseph Stalin said.

He said the Ministry should take steps to remove the salary anomalies in teachers' and principals’ services since 2017. Seventeen trade unions including the CTU are expected to join the token strike, Mr Stalin said.

During the strike, teachers' and principals have decided to report sick on March 13 and the Education Ministry Secretary has been informed about this in writing, he added. (Chaturanga Samarawickrama)

    Not unreasonable. Teachers get only about Rs 40,000/-

    It is a fair request, how much paid by this gov. for judges, ministry secretary and university academic staff and parliment members.
