The ongoing strike action launched by railway station masters will be intensified due to the authorities’ ill response to the demands, said the Railway Station Masters’ Association.
Accordingly, the station masters will be off from all duties from midnight tomorrow (26).
The issuance of train tickets and the reception of parcels have been halted due to the ongoing strike and there could be a risk of railway services being disrupted from tomorrow, the Union emphasised.
The above trade union action was taken based on several demands, to which no positive feedback was received from the authorities yet.
The situation has led the passengers to travel free of charge without tickets, incurring a daily loss of Rs. 09 million to the Railway Department.
