Colombo (LNW): The strike action launched by the Federation of University Teachers’ Association (FUTA) against the new tax policy introduced by the Ranil-Rajapaksa government continues for a 12th consecutive day today (20), making university activities severely crippled.
The Union stressed that the strike action will continue until solutions are provided to their issues.
Meanwhile, trade unions responding to the Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) and the National Water Supply and Drainage Board (NWSDB) have also launched a continuous strike against the government’s new tax regime.
In addition, the Professionals Trade Union Collective emphasised that they wish to hold a critical meeting with President Ranil Wickremesinghe this week, expecting an outcome determining the course of their ongoing trade union actions.
