trade union action is being taken seeking long-term solutions for three primary issues, including the shortage of survey field assistants and difficulties posed in making measurements owing to the redirection of already existing officials towards external tasks.

The Sri Lanka Government Surveyors’ Association has announced that they will be taking trade union action both today (11) and tomorrow (12), where surveyors will be calling in sick and taking leaves of absence.

Said trade union action is being taken seeking long-term solutions for three primary issues, including the shortage of survey field assistants and difficulties posed in making measurements owing to the redirection of already existing officials towards external tasks.

The Sri Lanka Government Surveyors’ Association has reportedly stated that a continuous strike will be launched from July 13 onwards if the Government fails to pay due attention to their requests.

The Association also proceeded to say that they had held discussions with the new Minister of Lands and Parliament Affairs, Gayantha Karunathilaka, who had promised to provide solutions within a week, but had then subsequently failed to do so even after a period of one and a half months had elapsed.
