Convening a media briefing, the Government Medical Officers’ Association warned of yet another trade union action.

The Government Medical Officers Association says that they require reasonable responses from the government regarding the issues which have arisen in the state sector through the budget, the harmful situation which is probable through the proposed Indo – Lanka Trade Agreement and the GMOA’s opposition of the private medical college.

Secretary of the GMOA, Dr. Nalinda Herath stated that during the discussion with the President on Friday, December 18, President Sirisena had requested them to wait till the final reading of the budget 2015 on Saturday, December 19 to analyse how far their requirements have been met.

He added that they have received reasonable responses to a certain extent, revealing however that it is not 100% satisfactory.

Media Spokesperson of GMOA, Dr. Navin de Zoysa stated that the government is open for discussion during the time period of two weeks which has been given to make necessary amendments.

He went on to note that if they do not arrive at a consensus during the discussion, they will be on standby to launch an countrywide trade union after the executive committee meeting on January 4.

Secretary of GMOA, Dr. Nalinda Herath stated that the special delegation from Sri Lanka which is leaving to India will plan an agreement that states that the government will open sectors Information Technology (IT) and repairs on ships to India.

He added that it is an invasion of Sri Lanka’s job market, therefore the risk in this is that there is no assurance on the quality of Indian employees.
