* Private Bus strike from midnight today to protest new spot fines
Wed, Aug 15, 2018, 12:54 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Aug 15, Colombo: A private bus association is preparing to launch a strike from midnight today (15) demanding the government to reduce the spot fines that were increased recently.

The All Ceylon Private Bus Workers' Association said it would launch a strike from midnight against new fines imposed for violating road rules. Even though the responsible authorities were informed of this, no justice was achieved, the Association said.

However, the Lanka Private Bus Owners Association (LPBOA) has decided not to support the strike. LPBOA President Gemunu Wijeratne requested the ACPBWA not to launch a strike until after the ongoing G.C.E. A/L examination is concluded.

Meanwhile the Inter Provincial Private Bus Owners Association also stated that they are not joining the strike.
