Massive TU action on 15 June


The National Trade Union Centre (NTUC) said, unions of all sectors will initiate trade union action against the President and the Prime Minister with effect from 15 June.

NTUC Co-Convener Wasantha Samarasinghe said, all State, semi-Government, private and estate sector workers will resort to trade union action to exert maximum pressure on the Government to address the burning issues of the country.

He alleged, the President invited Ranil Wickremesinghe to take over the Premiership to simply tide over the unrelenting pressure exerted on the Rajapaksa clan, and not with the sincere or fervent hope of resolving the day-to-day issues of the public.
