Postal protest suspended

Jan 25, 2011 5:11:50 AM - itnnews.lk

The protest campaign planned by several postal trade unions has been suspended.

The protest was to be held due to an issue connected with overtime payment. The campaign was suspended following discussions with Minister Jeevan Kumaratunga. The Minister said that all employees should come together in building the postal Department. He expects the employees to view the new proposals that are be implemented with flexibility.

Considerable change is required in the Postal Department. The income from the letters, registered letters, parcels and sale of stamps is inadequate to maintain the department. The Minister emphasized the need to leave the existing framework to accomplish the task.
