Strike action by education sector temporarily called off

Strike action which was to be launched by the Government education sector tomorrow has been temporarily called off.

Education trade unions said that the strike was called off following talks with President Maithripala Sirisena.

Following the talks President Maithripala Sirisena had instructed to temporarily halt the decision taken by the Education Ministry to provide appointments and promotions to employees in the education sector based on political victimization.

The President and the trade union leaders had reached at decisions to temporarily halt proposed promotions and appointments and to appoint a committee comprising of senior officials attached to the Government Administrative Service and Education Administrative Service to look into the list of those selected for the promotions and appointments. (Colombo Gazette)
