Railway trade unions agreed to give time until next Tuesday for the government to come up with a solution to their salary anomalies yesterday.
Unions threatened trade union action if the government failed to provide a viable solution within a week.
The railway trade union collective spokesman said unions will discuss the issue with President Maithripala Sirisena at 2 pm today.
Railway Trade Union Collective Co-convenor Lal Ariyaratne said trade unions expected a decision to be taken at last Tuesday’s cabinet meeting to rectify their salary anomalies.
He said their trade unions held a discussion with Finance and Media Minister Mangala Samaraweera on the issue and the Minister stressed that he is not in a position to implement the Cabinet paper on rectifying their salary anomalies.
