Central Mail Exchange employees initiate 24-hour token strike over elevator dysfunction

March 11, Colombo (LNW): The employees of the Central Mail Exchange in Colombo announced a 24-hour token strike commencing from midnight yesterday (10).

The United Postal Trade Unions Front (UPTUF) addressing a briefing yesterday elucidated that the strike action arises from the prolonged non-functionality of the building’s elevator, persisting for nearly a year.

They highlighted the significant challenges faced by approximately 40 per cent of female employees, including pregnant women, due to this issue.

Given that the Central Mail Exchange spans eight floors, maneuvering mail bags has become exceptionally burdensome.

If the government does not address the elevator repair within a month, the trade union action will persist, the UPTUF emphasised.
