GMOA to strike from Thursday

The Government Medical Officers’ Association (GMOA) stated that they will launch an island wide strike from next Thursday (22).

The strike is to commence on Thursday at 8.00 a.m. and is scheduled to continue until Friday morning.

According to the GMOA, they have arrived at this decision due to several reasons including the serious shortage of medicine in hospitals, failure to enforce minimum standards of medical education, amending the Service Minutes for doctors, illegal attempts to give appointments relating to the medical filed to persons who have not pass or sit for Advanced Level examination in Science stream.

Considering the importance of services provided in the maternity hospitals, children hospitals, Maharagama Apeksha hospital, Kidney diseases treatment units and military forces’ hospitals, the GMOA has decided not to carry out the trade union action in the said institutions.

The GMOA urges a round of discussion concerning their demands from the political authority headed by the President Maithripala Sirisena and the administrative authority along with the Secretary to the Health Ministry.
