Postal Unions threaten to Strike Demand for a ‘Closed Service’

Postal Unions threaten to Strike Demand for a ‘Closed Service’

The postal trade unions have decided to go for a strike in the coming fortnight if the Government does not take concrete steps to make the postal service a 'Closed Service'.

In a bid to resolve continuous contentious salary issues in the Railways, Health and Education sectors, the Government last week decided to make all three sectors 'Closed Services'.

By making a sector a 'Closed Service', the Government could remove that particular service from the combined services, where a person is recruited not to a post but to a Service, where staff is transferable......between Government Departments, thereby allowing the Government to increase the salaries of a particular service.

In response to these unions of the postal service have also decided that the postal service should also be made a Closed Service. The unions have also written to the Minister of Posts and have given him two weeks to response, Jagath Mahinda of the Lanka Postal Services Union said.
