Nov 15, Colombo: Education Minister of Sri Lanka Bandula Gunawardena has called a meeting with the representatives from the trade unions of teachers and principals to discuss their issues.

The meeting will take place at the Education Ministry on Friday (November 16).

The trade unions of school teachers and principals threatened to launch a continuous island wide strike on December 4th that would cripple the country's education sector if the authorities fail to address their demands.

The Ceylon Teachers' Union (CTU) and the Ceylon Teachers' Service Union (CTSU) has said the meeting with the Education Minister has been scheduled to discuss the unionists' demands on teacher promotions, salary anomalies, basic salary increments, and a higher budgetary allocation for the education sector.

The trade unions have stated that they would go ahead with the December 4th strike action if there is no positive outcome at the meeting with the Education Minster tomorrow.
