Public sector workers to strike despite Mahinda`s assurance

  • 15 Mar 2006 15:58:26 GMT

    We agree with sugath712 to a large extent

    Because of this unwise and unnecessary strike, which is purely based on jealousy towards administrative grades, the organizers deny a substantial salary increase proposed by the Thissa Devendra Commission which is beneficial to the entire public sector.

    Only a small minority oppose the Thissa Devendra Recommendations.

    Those who have seen the proposed salary structure for example in the department of education and in many other sectors are extremely happy with the recommendations. The organizers have misled the public servants.

    Majority of us in the education sector oppose this trade union action. The recommendations of the commission are beneficial to all the public servants including the unskilled workers in the health sector who are the main category which oppose the salary revision.

    Those so called trade union leaders are not doing any favor to the public servants by resorting to trade union action. They unnecessarily put the public in to inconveniences, the constant hardships faced by the public due to their action is a matter needs careful attention.

    They go on strike despite assurance of the Excellency the President. And the majority of the public servants are not going to benefit salary wise by their action.

    MR will very soon reap the harvest of all his LIES, FALSE PROMISES, DECEPTION and RACIST retoric during elections time.

    It was the JVP and the SLFP that used the Trade unions as their polictical tools to capture power - by hook or by crook. On the RATA PERATA Menefesto - each idiot was promised a 70% salary increase.

    Let them learn their lesson...

    Yes the trade unions are Mad (we knew that long time ago), but they are only demanding what they were promised.

    Yes we agree with anizam, now they create trouble between unions in order to avoid offering a salary increase as promised. That is the best way to avoid the issue. Some leaders may be misleading the members to achieve their political objectives. How intelligent looking are they? They can?t fool all the people all the time.

    To add to what i said earlier...

    Someone should write books about the Trade unions in SL. They seem to consist of some of the most well bread BUFFELOs in the whole world. Actually these are not ordinary buffelos - they are MAD BUFFELOs.

    just look at what they are doing...

    1. They demand Salary increases becasue the COL is high (which is a reasonable demand).

    2. HOwever, the smart thing to do would be to demand/protest/Hoot that the government implement a consistant and disciplined moneytary policy, so that inflation would be curtailed. But these GOATS have no brain to understand this. Instead - they demand thumping Salary increases.

    3. So politicians have no choice but to give/promise huge Salary increases.

    4. When you give Huge Salary increases, the money circulation increases and causes hyper inflation within six months to a year. The bigger the increase, the bigger the inflation jump.

    5. So within Six months, the orginal salary increase you got is totally wiped out by the cost of living. So its back to Hooting and strikes. Its in an environment like this that the JVP SWINES thrive......

    SL is a nation full of First class BUFFELOS - Trade Unions, Village Idiots, JVP, LTTE - so to top that all we go and elect the biggest BUFFELO we can find as President....

    ABCD :

    Thanks for the response. However, i dont agree with you on ONE POINT. You said `They can?t fool all the people all the time.`

    Well apprantaly they can fool most of the Southern idiots, 99% of the time.... As i have said on this forum many many times, it is pontless blaming MR and the JVP for taking the people for ride (and I HAVE TO KEEP REMINDING MYSELF of that ALL THE TIME)...

    When you fool a nation over and over and over again - then its not the fault of Politicians. The problem is with the people. When Stupidity is ingrained in the Genes - there is nothing anyone can do - except take advantage of the idiots. :) :)

    We thank, anizam,Lankanewspapers.com, sugath712 and others for highlighting these facts. at least 1% of the time and 1% of the population is aware of the underlying facts. That is some thing which we can be satisfied with, for the moment . Hope the rest will also understand the realities one day.
