Train strike from tonight


By Akitha Perera

The railway Locomotive Drivers Union yesterday said powerset engine drivers would resort to trade union action from midnight today in protest against the recruitment of engine driver assistants without following proper procedure.

Trade Union representative Indika Edangoda said about 100 trains would not operate during the strike.

He said drivers of the trains with Chinese-made carriages would also join the strike.

Edangoda said they were also protesting against the faulty brake system in the powersets.
