Colombo (LNW): The Professionals Trade Union Collective is set to convene for another meeting today (30), following many demands to meet with President Ranil Wickremesinghe to discuss the questionable tax policy not being met.
Representatives of 47 trade unions responding to a number of sectors, including Health, Govt Universities, Banking, and Engineering resorted to the trade union action against the government’s controversial tax policy adding the PAYE for persons earning an income of over Rs. 100,000.
Dr. Chamil Wijesinghe, Spokesperson for the Government Medical Officers’ Association (GMOA) said all union leaders will be invited to join the discussion today.
Meanwhile, the Federation of University Teachers Association (FUTA) confirmed that they will endorse other trade union actions and intensify them from April 03, 2023, if the government fails to provide any favourable solutions.
