NTUC To Submit Demand As Budget Proposal

The National Trade Union Center (NTUC) together with the Forum of Joint Trade Unions decided today (1) to submit its demand for a Rs. 8,000 salary increase for the working masses as a budget proposal for 2011 to the government.

NTUC Head and JVP Politburo member K.D. Lalkantha told The Sunday Leader that the demand for a salary increase would be proposed to the government as a budget proposal by the trade unions.

He said signatures of trade union representatives for the respective budget proposal will be collected tomorrow (2).

“The decision to propose the demand for a Rs. 8,000 salary increment to the government as a 2011 budget proposal was made by the Delegates Forum of Joint Trade Unions organized by the NTUC,” Lalkantha said.

He added that the trade unions would continue to fight for the salary increase and would resort to a massive trade union action if the government fails to address their demands.

    Hope Lal Kantha will provide the required funds! Economics don’t work the way he preaches and the funny thing is he knows it very well.His demands are absurd.

    You guys have done nothing meaningful for the country but annihilating two generations of wonderful people; one in 1971 and another in 1988-1990, which coincidently include my own brother. Your regret that the country is in the right path to prosperity, a fact that will definitely leave you in the political wonderland for ever, is the very reason for your fury against this Government.

    I am no fan of this Government, neither did I vote for it, but it is the best we have ever had in Sri Lanka’s modern history. Nothing is perfect, so is this Government and that makes one more reason for you guys to support rather than oppose it.

    I am sad you guys are trying to turn the very population saved by this President against him.
