Shortage Of Employees At Mail Exchange

Jun 20, 2011 11:12:07 AM - thesundayleader.lk

A shortage of employees at the Central Mail Exchange has resulted in the accumulation of over 20,000 registered letters that are yet unsorted.

According to postal sector trade unions the backlog is due to a shortage of staff at the Postal Department and the curtailment of overtime for the workers.

Therefore, one an employee completes his stipulated overtime hours, they refuse to work additional hours without receiving an allowance.

Postal Ministry Secretary Hemasiri Fernando has told the media that the Public Services Commission (PSC) was yet to respond to the request to recruit 1,000 new employees to the Exchange.
