Railway strike ends after talks

Railway trade unions have decided to end their ongoing strike action following discussion held with the authorities today (Jul 4).

Representatives of trade unions met with the Transport Minister Arjuna Ranatunga and State Minister Ashoka Abeysinghe with talks ending, a short while ago.

Unions had launched a strike after the Transport Ministry had allegedly exerted pressure on the Railways General Manager for taking diciplinary action on an officer who had consumed liquor during work hours.
