Railway strike to continue

The strike by railway trade unions will continue as talks between the railway authorities and union representatives failed union sources said.

The Cabinet Sub-Committee appointed last Friday to look into the salary anomalies of government institutions and recommend solutions was convened yesterday.

However, railway trade unions have decided to continue the strike as the discussions with the Cabinet Sub-Committee concluded without any decision, a Spokesman from the Locomotive Engine Operators’ Union (LEOU) told.

The trade unions resorted to strike action from midnight on September 25 demanding the authorities to remove the existing salary anomalies in the railway service.
