* Marxist party trade union of Sri Lanka re-launches campaign for salary hike from January 1st
Mon, Dec 31, 2012, 10:13 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Dec 31, Colombo: Sri Lanka's Marxist party Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) affiliated National Trade Union Center (NTUC) plans to re-commence the struggle from January for a salary hike for the working masses in line with the rising cost of living.

The NTUC will commence its struggle with an awareness campaign and a leaflet distribution campaign to be held tomorrow (January 1st) at 8 a.m. outside Sethsiripaya in Battaramulla.

NTUC Convener Samantha Koralearachchi said the government has so far failed to grant a proper salary increase to the people in the public, private and estate sectors in the country.

He noted that the NUTC has demanded for a Rs. 13,442.50 increase in the salaries of the public sector in line with the increase in the cost of living index, but that the government had failed to grant it.

All NTUC leaders are expected to attend the leaflet distribution campaign in Colombo tomorrow. The NTUC plans to carry out the campaign at district level as well.
