No trains today, use buses to go to work

Engine drivers' union and the guards' union have announced that they would resort to a trade union action and asked the public to use alternative transport ways.
However, state transport minister Dilum Amunugama says additional buses have been deployed to facilitate those who are going for work.
Previously, deputy general manager of railways Gamini Seneviratne had stated that arrangements have been made to operate five special trains to serve the people coming to work from outstation areas.
