Mon, Feb 17, 2014, 10:15 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Feb 17, Colombo: A trade union affiliated to Sri Lanka's education sector has written to the Education Ministry Secretary asking it to allow Tamil teachers in the country to engage in their work in the Tamil language.

The Ceylon Teachers' Services Union (CTSU) said the Education Ministry must facilitate Tamil teachers to engage in their official work in the Tamil language.

General Secretary of the CTSU, Mahinda Jayasinghe noted in the letter that Tamil teachers have to face numerous inconveniences since most of the documentation they have to deal with is in the Sinhala language.

He noted that written communication and requests for leave should be submitted in English but Tamil and Muslim teachers are more comfortable in the Tamil language.

Jayasinghe explained that the inconveniences faced by Tamil and Muslim teachers could impact on their levels of efficiency as well.

The Union urged the Education Ministry to provide all Tamil and Muslim teachers' information in the Tamil language and provide them with the documentation the Tamil language.
