Seven trade unions attached to the Ceylon Petroleum Corporation (CPC) has decided to launch an indefinite strike from midnight today demanding the government to halt the proposed pact to be signed with India regarding the Trincomalee oil tanks.

Sri Lanka and India are expected to sign an agreement to jointly invest and develop the Trincomalee Port and establish a petroleum refinery and other industries there.

CPC Sri Lanka Freedom Workers Union President and Media Spokesman Bandula Saman Kumara said the decision was made since the authorities have yet failed to address their issues. He stated that they have decided to launch the island wide strike to safeguard the CPC and its resources.

He also stated that island wide oil distribution will be interrupted due to the trade union action. “Oil will not be issued tomorrow from Kolonnawa, Muthurajawela, Sapugaskanda and the 12 oil storages established around the country,” he warned
