A discussion was held, at the Highways Ministry on 30 June, between Transport Minister Bandula Gunawardena and Sri Lanka Transport Board (SLTB)trade unions.
They discussed remedying long unaddressed salary anomalies of SLTB workers.
The trade unions pointed out that the salary anomalies had not been resolved effectively since 2018. Gunawardena urged the trade unions to submit their grievances and assured them that he will intervene to solve their issues following talks with his officials.
He had also promised to submit a paper to the Cabinet to sort out the issues highlighted by the trade unions.
