Several railway unions announced their plan to hold weekly strikes on Thursdays beginning Thursday, June 27. The railway unions previously participated in a 48-hour strike on Friday, June 21, and Saturday, June 22. Union members, which include drivers, controllers, guards, and stationmasters, are expected to continue weekly strikes until their demands over salary anomalies are met. Significant rail transportation disruptions are expected along with crowded conditions on operational days.
Individuals in Sri Lanka are advised to monitor the situation, anticipate rail transportation disruptions, and seek alternative modes of transportation if necessary.
