All Ceylon Trade Union Federation

Inter Company Employees’ Union

All Ceylon Estate Workers Union

We All Ceylon Trade Union Federation, Inter Company Employees’ Union and All Ceylon Estate Workers Union are the widest and main trade union movement which represents the working people in Sri Lanka. All Ceylon Trade Union Federation has been established to organize the Public Sector workers and Inter Company Employees’ Union covers the Private Sector workers. Estate workers are organized around the All Ceylon Estate Workers Union.

The Socialist Workers Union, the workers wing of the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (People’s Liberation Front-JVP) gives the leadership to this three trade union federations.

We could form the National Trade Union Centre (NTUC) organizing almost all the progressive trade unions to one centre and it is a great victory of the working class of Sri Lanka.

Our History

The Lanka Sama Samaja Party and Sri Lanka Communist Party gave the leadership for the Old Left Movement in Sri Lanka. The Old Left Movement gradually went for coalition with the capitalist parties and therefore, there was a good ground for a real left movement in Sri Lanka. Specially, both the betrayals of the “People’s Uprising” in 1953 and “21 Demands Movement” in 1964 were crucial points urged a new real Left for Sri Lankan society. In that background, Comrade Rohana Wijeweera could found the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna in 1965.

Until 1980, the Socialist Workers Union did not take the steps to form the trade unions under her leadership because of the view that it would caused to divide and weaken the working class further. Initially, the SWU’s strategy was to capture the power of the trade unions had been established by that time. Meanwhile, the old left movement again organized another huge strike in 1980 and the strike is recognized as “July Strike in1980”. The strike was not a well organized one and the leaders of the strike gave up the strike amidst the brutal suppression of the then UNP government. At that movement the JVP decided to form her own trade union movement.

Initially, we formed the trade unions in public sector and combining the trade unions in public sector, the All Ceylon Trade union Federation was established. Comrade Rohana Wijeweera and Comrade Upathissa Gamanayaka were the President and General Secretary of the Federation respectively. Thereafter, the All Ceylon Corporation Employees’ Union and All Ceylon Estate Workers Union were established. Comrade Lionel Bopage was the first General Secretary of the All Ceylon Corporation Employees’ Union and Comrade Thangaraja was the first General Secretary of All Ceylon Estate Workers Union.

The JVP was banned in 1983 and thereafter her trade union movement was banned in 1987. With the general election in 1994, the ban had been imposed for the JVP was left and the JVP started the public works thence. Around 1995-96, the trade union activities also were re-started.
