Railway employees at attempt to launch another strike

Friday, 12 July 2019

Reportedly, the Railway Department employees are preparing to launch another strike action, over arbitrarily recruiting employees while 750 casual employees were left off without being appointed into permanent cadre.

The railway trade unions said these employees have been working under casual, contract, or substitute basis for over five years, and neglecting their service, another group of people have been recruited into permanent cadre.

The trade unions allege that the authorities are trying to appoint these people into jobs on political grounds.
