Nurses to strike today

Nurses to strike today

2012 Dec 19

The nurses attached to State hospital will launch a strike today in response to the continued negligence of their demands by health officials and the Treasury Secretary.
President of the Government Nursing Officers’ Association (GNOA), Saman Ratnapriya, said every effort will be taken to assist those affected by the natural disasters due to the inclement weather.
The strike action will be taken as a means to fortify a number of demands made by the GNOA, namely; nullification of gazette paper 1779 regarding new recruitment of nurses, recruitment of persons with nursing degrees to government nursing posts and granting promotions to the 3,000 or so nursing officials, among others.
Approximately 25,000 nurses from 600 hospitals will be participating in the strike action. However, nurses attached to the Colombo de Soyza Hospital, Lady Ridgeway Children’s Hospital and Castle Street Hospital for Women will not be taking part in these actions, citing moral reasons.
