Port workers strike called off

The trade unions of the Colombo Port called off the strike they had launched demanding the commencement of operations in the Eastern terminal, following a meeting held with Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa.

The meeting was held at Weeraketiya, Calton House between the Prime Minister and representatives of 14 trade unions this morning.

The trade union action was taken by 23 trade unions of the Colombo Port demanding a written assurance from the President that the Eastern Terminal of the Colombo Port will stay under the purview of Sri Lanka Ports Authority. The trade unions withdrew from all duties with effect from Friday (31), bringing operations at the port to a standstill.
