Mon, Dec 18, 2017, 10:42 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Dec 18, Colombo: Joint Trade Union Coalition of Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB), Sri Lanka's power authority, announced that the CEB employees would launch an indefinite strike if the government fails to respond to their demands by today.

Ceylon Electricity Employees Union Secretary Ranjan Jayalal said the hunger strike launched by CEB employees will continue for the 8th day today.

Earlier the Union leader said they will not launch an indefinite island wide strike because it could inconvenience the students taking the GCE O/L exams.

However, if their demands are not met by Monday they will launch an indefinite strike, he said.

Joint Trade Union Coalition of Ceylon Electricity Board launched the hunger strike demanding an immediate halt to slashing their annual bonus and medical leave.

The Union collective is expected to meet the Secretary to the Power and Renewable Energy Ministry today to resolve the issues.

Jayalal said they will decide on continuing the strike depending on the conclusion reached by the administration.
