Trade unions affiliated to Inland Revenue Department are to commence union action from today (14) against the decision to absorb Provincial Council tax officers to the department.
Trade unions state that the decision has been made following a proposal made by a three member committee appointed by Treasury Secretary Dr. P.B. Jayasundara.
According to employees at the Inland Revenue Department, the decision to absorb the Provincial Council tax officers to the Department would affect their promotions and professional status.
The trade unions therefore say that a sick note campaign will be launched from tomorrow and would continue until the decision is withdrawn.
