Railway trade unions launched a 48-hour token strike from midnight yesterday after their discussions with Finance Minister Mangala Samaraweera failed.

Earlier, they had decided to launch a 48-hour token strike from Wednesday night, but it was postponed till 2 pm yesterday till their discussion with the Finance Minister.

However, the discussion commenced at 2 pm yesterday had concluded without any acceptable solution, a Railway Trade Union Alliance spokesman (RTUA) said.

Railway guards, engine drivers and station masters were planing to launch a 48-hour token strike due to the lack of a proper response from authorities to rectify their salary anomalies.
