The Lanka Private Bus Owners Association (LPBOA) has warned that it will launch trade union action next week if the government fails to increase bus fares.
LPBO President Gemunu Wijeyratne said that private bus operators expect a response from the government to their demands during the course of this week.
“If there is no response then next week we will launch trade union action,” Wijeyratne said.
He also accused the National Transport Commission of being corrupt and hopes to write to President Mahinda Rajapaksa over the issue. (Colombo Gazette)
