SLTB pays 508 workers without duties Featured

The SLTB has been paying salaries of 508 of its workers who are without duties for 10 months now, says the Samastha Lanka Pravahana Sevaka Sangamaya.

This is despite the cash-strapped institution’s forced to pay its workers in instalements, said its secretary Sepala Liyanage.

Plans had been made to introduce a voluntary retirement scheme for these workers, but money cannot be found to pay their retirement benefits.

Since they are to retire, they are not being given duties, and they only report for duties until their payments are made, said Liyanage.
