Samurdhi banks to close on April 15?



The Alliance of Samurdhi Unions says that they are protesting against the decision of the Department of Samurdhi Development to spend Rs. 80.5 million from the Samurdhi Fund on new year celebrations.

They point out that they oppose this move taken in a backdrop where the public is facing a dire financial crisis.

They unions also allege that consecutive governments have evaded the issue of granting employee rights for nearly 28 years.

In response to these matters, the Alliance of Samurdhi Unions says they would resort to a Trade Union action to close the Samurdhi banks and refrain from holding customary Sinhala Hindu New Year transactions on April 15 while boycotting the New Year celebrations.
