Teacher Unions to protest opposite Fort Station
By Anurada Herath
The teacher trade unions have decided to stage a massive protest opposite Fort Railway Station today (22), urging the Government to resolve pending issues faced by teachers and principals such as salary anomalies.
The General Secretary of the Ceylon Teacher Services Union (CTSU) Mahinda Jayasinghe said that the protesters will proceed towards the Presidential Secretariat.
He charged that for the past 24 years successive regimes had ignored issues faced by teachers and principals and noted that they will be engaging in continuous protests to win their demands.
