The National Trade Union Center (NTUC) has decided to launch an aggressive campaign to create awareness among people about the rising cost of living, the living conditions of the people and the need for a proper salary hike.
The campaign is to be launched on Tuesday (18) with a seminar at the Public Library auditorium. NTUC Head and JVP politburo member K.D. Lalkantha is to deliver the main lecture at the event.
NTUC Convener, Samantha Koralearachchi said that people need to be made aware of the government’s false promises with regard to salary increases and the real situation with regard to the cost of living.
Koralearachchi observed that the NTUC would continue with the awareness campaign and would also speak with the other trade unions about the action to be taken to win the demands of the working masses.
