2017-Dec-28 | By News Admin

The Sri Lanka Immigration and Emigration Officers’ Association has warned the government that it would resort to stern trade union action unless their demands, chiefly a proper service minute, were met.

Addressing the media yesterday, President of the Association Aruna Kanugala said the government had sought two more weeks to meet their demands and it had to stick to the December 30th deadline.

Kanugala said that if the government failed to meet the demands it would first launch a protest and awareness campaign before resorting to stern trade union action.

However, he said that due to the nature of their duties, they could not go on strike at their respective work places such as the airport and the ports, though there was no legal barrier.
