CEB cancels leave, trade unions go ahead with strike
[TamilNet, Friday, 28 August 2009, 04:23 GMT]
Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) announced Thursday that all leave to employees has been cancelled with immediate effect. This decision has been taken in view of the proposed strike by CEB trade unions on Friday demanding a salary increase, CEB spokesman said.
CEB unions said they are going ahead with the strike despite the CEB decision cancelling leave.
CEB has alerted the security forces to deploy more personnel to ensure uninterrupted power supply throughout the country as it fears that these trade unions might attempt to sabotage the power supply.
