Chairman of Railway Station Masters’ Union – Sumedha Somarathna says that the Department of Railways incurs a daily loss of around Rs. 08 – 09 million as Station masters are refraining from issuing tickets.
They resorted to this Trade Union action from yesterday (23) midnight.
Noting that the usual daily income from issuing tickets is around Rs. 08 – 09 million, Mr. Somarathna said that it could be higher these days due to the festive season.
He added that they will definitely resort to an indefinite strike from Dec. 26 midnight.
