* Sri Lanka teacher trade unions' demand for salary increase refused
Tue, Jan 15, 2013, 11:17 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Jan 15, Colombo: The National Salaries and Cadre Commission of Sri Lanka has refused to accept the demand by trade unions of teachers and principals for a salary increase.

The Ceylon Teachers' Union (CTU) states that the Commission had rejected the requests put forward by the teachers' and principals' unions.

Among the demands of the teachers and principals are basic salary increments, teacher transfers, settlement of salary arrears and overdue promotions.

The CTU has observed that the Education Ministry has also failed to respond to the unions' demand on addressing the salary anomalies among teachers and principals.

CTU General Secretary, Joseph Stalin has said the Education Ministry needs to inform the unions of its stance on the salary anomalies.

However, he has added that the teachers' unions would resort to trade union action if the Ministry fails to respond to the demands.
