* Trade unions of Sri Lanka's education sector threaten action against zonal education directors
Thu, Dec 6, 2012, 09:05 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Dec 06, Colombo: Education sector trade unions in Sri Lanka have threatened trade union action against the zonal education directors.

The Ceylon Teachers' Union (CTU) says that zonal education directors are threatening and intimidating teachers who had applied for sick leave as part of their trade union action on the 4th when teachers and principals carried out a one day strike based on five demands including a salary hike.

CTU General Secretary Joseph Stalin has said that some zonal education directors have questioned teachers who had applied for sick leave by interrogating them about reasons for applying for leave.

He has noted that no one could question if a person applies for leave if the person has leave.

According to Stalin, the intimidation of teachers by the education authorities is an attempt to disrupt future trade union action.

He has said the trade unions would go for an intense trade union action if education authorities try to intimidate teachers.
