    The night shift has been cancelled due to a strike by Sri Lankan labourers, as a result of which the road was closed by some local Sri Lankan people.

    Of course, "has been" is singular and "have been" is plural. The tense is called the past perfect, q.v., and is used when speaking in the present tense about an action that was completed in the past. Study up on the past perfect.
