* CEB engineers suspend trade union action to shut down Norochcholai plant, work-to-rule campaign
Tue, Jun 12, 2018, 10:37 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

June 12, Colombo: The Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) Engineers Association says that they have decided to temporarily halt the month-long work-to-rule trade union action they launched from May 8.

CEB Engineers' Union President Athula Wanniarachchi said they decided to suspend the trade union action since the power regulator, Public Utilities Commission of Sri Lanka (PUCSL) has promised to implement the CEB's 20 year low cost electricity generation plan.

Wanniarachchi said the union's action to shut down the Norochcholai, Lakvijaya Coal Power Station today (June 12) at 4 pm is also suspended.

The trade union leader earlier said if the authorities fail to provide a favorable response to their demands, the CEB Engineers who were on a work to rule campaign for over a month will decide to suspend work at the Norochcholai coal power plant today.
