Meanwhile, the Ceylon Workers’ Congress (CWC) is also slated to meet the President today to discuss the increasing the basic daily wage of estate workers to Rs 1000.
The Leader of CWC and Nuwara Eliya district MP Arumugan Thondaman stated this addressing a press conference held at the headquarters of the party in Kotagala, Hatton regarding the trade union actions to be taken regarding the issue.
He further said that the strike action launched by estate workers had entered the 6th day as of yesterday.
The other trade unions had also ensured their support for the strike actions, MP Thondaman said.
He further commented that the discussions held with the former President Rajapaksa had come to a halt due to the interim order issued by the Supreme Court recently.
