Postal services across the island are expected to be disrupted today as several postal department trade unions have launched a 24-hour trade union action based on several demands. 

Co-convenor of the Joint Federation of Postal Services Union, Chinthaka Bandara, said that the postal workers have applied for sick leave as part of the trade union action which commenced from midnight yesterday. 

 The employing of workers, promotions and other issues have been cited as reasons for the union action. 

Bandara also said that a Styagraha will be staged opposite the Postal Department Headquarters this morning.
