Sri Lanka doctors strike today

The Government Medical Officers' Association (GMOA)executive committee has decided to strike work today demanding the arrears of the Rs. 29,000 allowance that was granted in 2008.

A spokesman of the GMOA said that the allowance paid so far is Rs. 15,000 and they were fighting for none months to win the rest and the arrears.

The spokesman said that the strike would be island wide sans several major sections of hospitals where strike will not be held on humanitarian grounds.

Meanwhile, the Minister of Health Maithripala Sirisena said that he held a discussion with the GMOA this morning as well and steps will be initiated to settle the issue through negotiations.
