The token strike launched by the Government Medical Officers Association yesterday concluded at 8 this morning, which has badly affected operations at state hospitals across the island.
The Government Medical Officers Association has claimed the 24 hour island wide token strike launched by them yesterday is success.
Executive Committee member Dr. Prasad Colambage said a series of strike actions will be initiated if the government fails to abolish the Sri Lanka – Singapore Free Trade Agreement.
Justifying the strike he said it was launched to highlight the negative impact the FTA has on the country and to thereby force the government to cancel the agreement.
He noted the government’s failure to address their demands will lead to either an indefinite strike or a series of strike actions..
However kidney disease wards and emergency services were functional while services at all maternity, children’s and cancer hospitals also continued as per usual.
Dr. Colambage in the meantime said President Maithripala Sirisena has extended an invitation to the Government Medical Officers Association to hold talks next Tuesday.
