Trade Unions Ask Workers To Vote Wisely

Mar 9, 2011 9:40:38 AM - thesundayleader.lk

Trade unions have called on the working masses to use their votes at the forthcoming local government elections wisely given the large number of unresolved issues faced by them.

The National Trade Union Center (NTUC) Convener Samantha Koralearachchi says that the working masses should use their votes wisely and vote to bring about a change.

Koralearachchi told the media that the government has failed to provide a decent salary to the working masses amidst a soaring cost of living although it has claimed to have uplifted their lives.

He noted that the government has also failed to honor its promises of granting salary increments to workers in the public, private and estate sectors.

According to Koralearachchi, the working people should vote to bring about a change ion order to find solutions to their problems.
