Estate workers to lose welfare when receiving Rs 1,000
The Sri Lanka Plantation Planters' Association states that increasing the daily basic wage of plantation workers to Rs. 1,000 an unfavourable situation is emerging.
Media Spokesman Roshan Rajathurai stated that the MoU between the Estate Employers' Association and the Estate Trade Unions was terminated following the decision.
He also stated that due to this the welfare facilities that the plantation workers were entitled to will be lost.
