NTUC To Organize Protest Against Price Hikes

Feb 17, 2011 9:29:22 AM - thesundayleader.lk

The National Trade Union Center (NTUC) has formed a Joint Forum of Workers Against the Increasing of Prices to launch an island wide protest campaign against the rising prices of consumer goods resulting in the increase in the cost of living.

Convener of the NTUC Samantha Koralearachchi says that the masses are faced with sever hardships due to the rapid increase in the prices of essential commodities.

The Joint Forum of Workers has therefore decided to launch a protest campaign against the government and its failure to address the issues faced by the people related to the rising cost of living, he said.

According to Koralearachchi, the protest campaign would be launched from work places in Colombo and spread to all parts of the island.
