Railway trade unions to continue strike tomorrow

October 11, 2017   10:43 pm

Railway trade unions say that they will continue with their strike tomorrow (12) as government officials have failed to respond to their demands. 

Engine drivers and railway guards had launched a strike this evening based on several demands. 

All trains starting from Colombo Fort and Maradana were cancelled due to the strike leading to a disruption in train services from Colombo.

A tense situation was also reported at the Fort Railway Station as commuters vented their anger in protest over the sudden cancellation and train delays.

They had reportedly caused damages to property at the train station and also stormed the office of the officer in charge of the station. 

According to reports, police teams were deployed to Fort and Maradana railway station to maintain order.
