The employees of the unguarded Railway level crossing who were on strike for the last two weeks resumed work yesterday (21). The 72 employees are manning in 27 unguarded Railway level crossings between Batticaloa to Vakaneri.
It is good to recall that they are demanding permanent employment in the Railway Department.At the movement their appointment is by the Police Department.
Last 4 years they have been in employment but have not been made permanent. At the month they are being paid at the rate of Rupees 250 per day for 30 days only.
