Sri Lanka Rupavahini Corporation staff goes on strike over salary delay

A few hundreds of staff members of the country’s national television Sri Lanka Rupavahini Corporation (SLRC) went on strike this morning for several hours, when they did not receive their August salary till this evening.

All six trade unions of the SLRC backed by over 200 staff members in various categories from the production to the labourer resorted to a work stoppage around 10.00am today as they had not received their salaries, as scheduled to be on every 25th of the month, sources said.

Sources within the national television told the Daily Mirror that a sum of Rs.65 million was supposed to be remunerated amongst a permanent staff of over 800 employees in the SLRC every month, which had not been made by this day morning as its financial management could not find such money.
