CEB engineers refuse to work outside eight hours
Engineers of the Ceylon Electricity Board say they will stay away from attending to power restoration work outside their eight-hours of work.
Their Union is on a work-to-rule campaign for six days now to press for several demands.
President of the union Saumya Kumarawadu said the engineers would not carry out power restoration work after 4.15 pm from today (01) to protest the sending of two additional general managers on compulsory leave.
The CEB engineers want the government not to proceed with the deal with US-based energy company New Fortress Energy Inc. among five other demands.
