The Private Bus Operators Association yesterday called-off the token strike which was scheduled to be held in the Western Province today. The private bus operators demanded an increase of a minimum bus fare by one rupee. According to Association President Gemunu Wijeratne, the Association arrived at this decision following a discussion with the Government Ministers last night.
He requested the members of his Association to ensure that all buses of the Association’s membership are on the roads today.
“Our Association decided not to take part in the scheduled Trade Union action following the assurance given by the Government,” Wijeratne told the Daily News.
He said the Government Ministers with whom his Association held talks agreed to consider their demands at highest level.
