CTB strike in Vavuniya continues

The SLTB bus drivers continued their strike action for the second day in Vavuniya today (29).

The strike was launched in protest of the Vavuniya bus stand workers being transferred due to political reasons, they claim.

The SLTB workers said the protest also is in protest of the high handed approach of the provincial Manager of the SLTB Northern province.

Due to the protest, all SLTB busses have refrained from operations and have been parked at the SLTB depot.

All employees of the Vavuniya SLTB depot have joined in this strike action.
