Water Board to become a Company PDF Print E-mail
The Trade Union federation of the National Water Supply and Drainage board says that arrangements are being made to convert the Water Board in to a limited liability company named Lanka Water Services Pvt Ltd.

According to a spokesman of the Union the feasibility study and project proposal compiled in this regard by the Director Board is to be handed over to the Minister soon. He also said that when such an attempt was made previously the trade unions objected and Minister Dinesh Gunawardena agreed to make some amendments to it but now it is being implemented once again without these changes.

Gen secretary of the workers union of the Water board Upali Ratnayake said that they have decided to take strong trade union to protest against the decision not to grant them any annual bonus with the salary this year. He also said that bonus should be paid to workers before the 25th of this month and if this does not happen about 8,000 workers of the Board will go for a strike.
