Views of Trade Unions were sought for the 2017 budget today. Trade Union representatives submitted their proposals to Minister Ravi Karunayake at the Finance Ministry. The Trade Unions proposed that formal training should be imparted to those who are newly recruited to the Public Service. Another proposal was the amendment of the age limit of those who are retiring. Discussions also centred on levying taxes from those who earn a higher income but not coming under the tax process. The Ministry said that many proposals including the strengthening of the public transport service were handed over to the Finance Minister. Minister Ravi Karunanayake said that the related proposals could be considered so that a maximum service could be provided to the people.
