Subject Minister and TUs discuss on sending public servants for foreign employment

A discussion was held between Trade Minister Manusha Nanayakkara and trade unions of the Public Sector yesterday (03) regarding the sending of public servants for foreign employments as a solution to the prevailing forex crisis.

The trade unions demanded that public servants be given the opportunity for employment overseas but in a manner by which their seniority is not compromised, and stressed the importance of sending excess public servants for overseas jobs.

Addressing the meeting, TUs of the Sri Lanka Transport Board and the Port emphasised that the weight put on the Treasury may be reduced should the excess workers employed in the Technical Sector be given the opportunity to work overseas.

The meeting also discussed the importance of sending trainee workers trained by institutes like the SLTB and the Mahapola Technical Training Institute for foreign employment.

In response, the Subject Minister revealed that steps are being taken to call for proposals from the TUs regarding the Public Sector fields that could provide foreign employment opportunities.
