The countrywide strike action launched by  Supplementary Medical Professionals enters its third day on Thursday after talks between representatives of the trade unions and health authorities ended on Wednesday evening without a resolution.

General Secretary of the Joint Trade Union Council of Professions Supplementary to Medicine, Saman Jayasekera said the council will engage in rigorous trade union action starting from Thursday.

The joint council launched the trade union action based on several demands which include promotions.

When News1st inquired from Deputy Minister of Health Lalith Dissanayake in this regard he said:

“As we have appointed a cabinet committee to look into their issues with the promotions, we informed them that we will work towards providing a cabinet report at the first cabinet meeting. However, they have demanded an immediate solution from the cabinet which cannot be provided. They continue to inconvenience the public with the strike action. We wanted to provide a solution for their grievances as the public is being inconvenienced. They choose however, to continue with the strike action.”
