Labour Min­is­ter calls for report on Brandix

- BY PIYUMI FONSEKA Crime · Politics

Labour Min­is­ter Ni­mal Siri­pala de Silva has di­rected the Labour Com­mis­sioner to im­me­di­ately sub­mit him a report re­gard­ing al­le­ga­tions lev­elled by sev­eral trade unions against the Brandix man­age­ment that the com­pany had al­legedly failed to fol­low safety and health pro­to­cols.

Min­is­ter de Silva said he in­formed the trade unions to file a writ­ten com­plaint with the min­istry to con­sider fur­ther ac­tion. He also added that the man­age­ment of such fac­to­ries or any other com­pa­nies were bound to fol­low the rel­e­vant safety and health pro­to­cols, gazetted by the Quar­an­tine and Preven­tion of Dis­eases Or­di­nance. “If we find that the com­pany has not fol­lowed the safety pro­to­cols, ac­tion can be taken against them ac­cord­ing to quar­an­tine law,” he fur­ther said.
