Government Reports Misleading - FUTA Strike Continues

The government is continuing to misguide the public by issuing incorrect statements with regard to its on going negotiations with the FUTA.

The have received first hand information from the FUTA that there have been no meetings between the government and the FUTA since the last two meetings held on the 21st and 22nd of August 2012. At the meeting on the 21st Minister Basil Rajapaksa had promised the FUTA that a meeting with Dr. P. B. Jayasundara will be arranged on the 22nd and then on the 22nd the FUTA had been informed that the meeting will be postponed to the 24th. FUTA sources inform us that this meeting too did not take place.

The FUTA has not yet reached any conclusive agreement with the Government. Hence, all announcements by the government that the strike would come to an end soon are merely speculative at this point, the FUTA sources said.
