The lightning railway strike, that was launched on Wednesday (11) evening, was suspended last evening following discussions held between the President's Secretary and the railway trade unions.

Convener of the Railway Trade Union Alliance Janaka Fernando said that a seven-member committee, including the Chairman of the National Salaries Commission, and the Secretary to the......Ministry of Civil Aviation and Transport was appointed to look
into the grievances of the Railway employees.

Earlier yesterday, the Ministry spokesperson noted that the railway commuters will be allowed to use their season tickets to travel in CTB busses, if the strike was to continue.
