The strike action launched by Railway station masters has been ceased, following a discussion held with the State Minister of Transport this (28) afternoon.
The decision was taken by the Railway Station Masters’ Association.
Accordingly, from tomorrow, the duties will be resumed including the issuance of train tickets and accepting parcels, said Kasun Chamara, the Secretary General of the Association.
The strike action was commenced on December 23 based on a number of demands, leading to a halt of many railway operations including the issuance of tickets. The strike action was intensified with the station masters’ withdrawal from more operations including the transportation of fuel, cement and wheat flour from yesterday.
