Fri, Jan 14, 2022, 09:37 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Jan 14, Colombo: The sudden strike launched by the Railway Station Masters has ended after the Railway authorities took measures to reinstate Nuwan Ilangasinghe, the Vice President of the Railway Station Masters union, who was suspended by the General Manager of Railways.

However, the General Secretary of the Railway Station Masters Union Kasun Chamara told media that it will take some time for the trains to operate and delays would be possible.

The trains that were in operation were halted due to the strike launched by the Station Masters this morning, few hours after they ended the one-day token strike launched on 12th midnight yesterday.

It is reported that the Station Masters abruptly withdrew from their duties this afternoon because the General Manager of Railways has taken action to suspend the Vice President of the Railway Station Masters union.
