A strike organized by several railway unions was called off on Monday, October 7, after twelve consecutive days. Union members initiated the work stoppage on September 25 to demand salary increases; the strike caused severe transportation disruptions nationwide. The workers called off the strike following negotiations with the government.
Normal railway operations are expected to resume immediately, though lingering disruptions are possible.
Individuals in Sri Lanka are advised to monitor the situation, prepare for lingering rail transportation disruptions, and seek alternative modes of transportation if necessary.
