The JVP affiliated All Ceylon Estate Workers Union (ACEWU) has said it would hold protests demanding a salary increase for the estate workers.

According to the ACEWU, the protests will be organized from May 8.

ACEWU Secretary J.M. Premaratne has told the media that the protest campaign would be organized as an individual trade union representing the estate workers. The estate sector unions have called for an increase of the estate workers’ daily wage to Rs. 700.

Premaratne has said discussions for a collective effort of all trade unions who were non signatories of the collective agreement would commence after the May Day celebrations.
