20% allowance for water board employees from today


The Water Supply and Drainage Board says that its workers will be paid an interim allowance of 20% until their salary is increased for 2015.

Water Supply and Drainage Board Director of Operation Mahilal Silva told our news team that the interim allowance has been deposited to each worker’s private bank account.

However workers attached to the Water Supply and Drainage Board are refusing the interim allowance.

They demand that the relevant annual salary increment should be paid immediately.

Meanwhile Water board workers of the Central Province launched a strike against halting their annual salary increment.
