Colombo, Aug 22 (BAN/ AD): Government Medical Officers Association (GMOA) has on Thursday launched a token strike from 8am Thursday to 8 am Friday. Dr. Prasad Colombage GMOA media committee member said the one day token strike is being carried out based on several demands.
GMOA has also said strike will not affect Maternity Hospitals, Children’s Hospitals, Cancer Hospital, Special Kidney Treatment Units and Tri-forces hospitals.
However, the Government Medical Officers Forum says they will not support trade union action of the GMOA. Secretary of the Forum Dr. Niroshan Premaratne said the strike was unfair and unjustified and is being carried out based on false facts to mislead the public to achieve their personal political motives.
