Prisons Dept warns officers against TU activities

June 20, Colombo (LNW): The Prisons Department has issued a stern warning to officers, stating that strict disciplinary actions will be enforced against those engaging in trade union activities.

Prisons Commissioner (Operations/Intelligence) and spokesperson, Gamini B. Dissanayake, stressed that prison officers do not possess the legal right to participate in trade union actions.

He also indicated that legal proceedings would be initiated against any officers involved in such activities.

Commenting on a recent trade union action by certain prison officers, Dissanayake remarked that they received reports that a small faction of officers coerced others into participating.

The Colombo Magistrate has mandated disciplinary action, and a senior officer, therefore, will be appointed to oversee the situation and appropriate steps will be taken, he emphasised.
