Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) Engineers will launch their work-to-rule campaign from today (8), according to the Engineers’ Union chairman, Saumya Kumarawaduge.
He said, “The Public Utilities Commission of Sri Lanka (PUCSL) has to approve our mixed power generation plan, according to the law of the country. There are some reports that it will be presented to the Cabinet of Ministers for approval. We don’t think that such a thing is necessary. What we requested has not taken place yet. Therefore, the work-to-rule action will start from today as previously informed.”
He also warned that if power plants get deactivated outside of office hours, no engineer will go to repair them, adding that if the public gets inconvenienced through those power cuts, among others, the Government should be held responsible.
