35 Trains Canceled Amid Ongoing Sri Lanka Railways Strike

A total of 35 trains were canceled this morning due to the ongoing strike by the Sri Lanka Railways Locomotive Operating Engineers’ Union.

The strike, which began at midnight on June 6, has now entered its third day.

Despite the cancellations, 41 trains were still able to operate this morning.

According to a senior official from the Railways Department, measures were taken to ensure all-night mail trains ran on June 7 and 8, with plans to continue running night mail services today.

The strike is based on several demands, including issues related to the promotions of locomotive drivers and delays in recruitment.
