CEB workers to report sick on Wednesday
Employees of the Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) have decided to engage in a sick note campaign on Wednesday (April 11) demanding a 25% increase in wages.
Ranjan Jayalal, Committee Member of the Joint Trade Union Alliance of the CEB, stated that even though executive level salaries and engineer salaries have been increased by a high percentage, the salaries of normal workers have not been increased sufficiently.
It is not the intention of our trade unions to make around 4 million of electricity consumers to face difficulties during the festive season, however we must take a stand against this grave injustice, he said.
Jayalal added that if a power failure occurs on April 11, it would take a long time to restore power and the government should take full responsibility if that happens.

Who are striking demanding the antiques lost in museum ? They are not just antiques , bit the heredity of our nation, income of our country from tourism, and the proud of our nation. They are just not a swords, but the swords which chopped foreign invaders.
Everyone is striking for the salary increase !.
If I were Inspector General, I would assign 25% of our current police force to find them.
Unfortunately our politicians including minister Champika Ranawaka and Wimal Weerawansa are also dormant in this case.
I believe Sri Lanka police can find anyhow this theft if they seriously want.
