The Electrical Engineers Association of the Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) has launched a work-to-rule trade union action from 12 noon today (19), in objection to the appointment of the new General Manager of the CEB.
The Electrical Engineers Association yesterday staged a protest on sick leave in objection to the new General Manager and told media that it would be launching a work-to-rule trade action today if the demand was not met.
Accordingly, the engineers who will be on duty in the first phase will be on duty only during the designated period.
However, they added that they will be reporting for duty in emergencies and crisis situations across the island during the first phase.
They added that they will not be reporting for duty after 04.15 pm in the second phase and even may be going on strike of nature after 1996 in the third phase was the matter not resolved under this circumstance.
The electrical engineers will not be responsible for the inconvenience caused to the government and the people amid the action, for the Chairman of the CEB and the those who endorsed the ‘US Pact’ should be held accountable, they added.
