Educators to stage sick leave protest over salary disparities

June 24, Colombo (LNW): Teachers, principals, teacher instructors, and Piriven educators will participate in a one-day sick leave protest this Wednesday (26) to address unresolved salary discrepancies and other demands, announced the Ceylon Teachers’ Union (CTU).

CTU General Secretary Joseph Stalin emphasised that the Cabinet sub-committee has agreed to correct one-third of the salary anomalies based on the Subodhini Committee Report.

However, the remaining salary issues for teachers and principals remain unaddressed.

The sick leave protest aims to press for the resolution of the remaining two-thirds of the salary anomalies.

All participating educators will gather outside the Fort Railway Station for a demonstration and to plan further actions if the government fails to respond.

“We also insist that the government should not impose school expenses on parents. It has been two years without any action to resolve the salary anomaly issue. During the sick leave protest, teachers and principals will abstain from their educational duties,” Stalin told Daily Mirror.
