* Administrative Service, university non-academic staff take trade union action today
Tue, Sep 10, 2019, 09:57 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Sept 10, Colombo: Sri Lanka Administrative Service officers have reportedly decided to launch a trade union action today (10) and tomorrow (11) based on several requests.

It is reported that nearly 3000 senior members of the Sri Lanka Administrative Service Association (SLASA) are expected to take part in the trade union action and will be reporting sick today and tomorrow.

The trade union action is taken over unresolved salary anomalies and unwarranted political interference.

The Sri Lanka Administrative Service Union states that due to this trade union action, the services of the Department of Immigration and Emigration, Registration of Persons, Department of Pensions, Motor Traffic Department, and Divisional Secretariats and District Secretariats throughout the country will be disrupted.

Meanwhile, the non-academic staff of the state universities across the island will go on a continuous strike from today demanding a salary increase.

University Trade Union Joint Committee says nearly 16,000 non-academic staff from 24 trade unions will join the strike.
