UNP Also Calls For Salary Increase

Nov 4, 2010 5:04:37 AM - thesundayleader.lk

The UNP has also joined the fight for a salary increase for the working masses by calling in the government to grant the increment in the 2011 budget.

The UNP today (4) called on the government to increase the salaries of the public sector employees by Rs. 10,000 and a similar increase in salaries for the private sector employees.

UNP MP Joseph Michael Perera has said that the trade unions affiliated to the UNP will join all other trade unions to launch a massive strike if the government fails to increase the salaries of the working masses.

He said the government has to grant the salary in its budget for 2011.

Meanwhile, the JVP affiliated trade unions have called on the government to increase the salaries of public sector employees by Rs. 8,000.

The JVP unions together with several other unions have already launched protest campaigns demanding the increment.
