The Ministry of Education is considering to set up new transfer boards for teachers consisting officials of the ministry in place of present transfer boards functioned by the trade union representatives.  
A circular signed by an Additional Secretary of the Education to give effect to the new decision has been sent to all  teachers unions, Chairman of the All Ceylon United Teachers Union Ven. Yalwela Pagnasekera 
Thera said.  


The representations of the trade unions in the teacher transfer boards help to ensure a reasonable transfer scheme.  However, shifting the power of transfer boards to officials will jeopardize teacher transfers due to possible political interference, he said.   All the unions have expressed their protest against the proposed new transfer boards and stern trade union action will follow if the new transfer boards are implemented
