Agreement to carry out several commutes!

The striking union members have now decided to carry out only several train commutes.

The decision to engage in several commutes was taken at a meeting held today among the striking unions, said the Secretary of the Engine Drivers Association Indika Dodamgoda.

He said although they had taken a decision to carry out some of the commutes in response to an appeal made by the railway officials, the strike action will continue.

However, they warned the public to be extra cautious at railway crossings as the trains are not operating according to the routine schedule.
