COLOMBO (News 1st); Health workers across Sri Lanka including nurses, and Public Health Inspectors are on strike citing multiple demands.

They resorted to the indefinite trade union action from Monday (7) against the government’s failure to remove salary anomalies and address their grievances, despite recent token strikes.

The unions demand that the authorities eliminate existing salary disparities in the sector just as they eliminated the teacher and principal salary anomalies

As a result of the strike, Clinics, Dispensaries, Blood Tests, as well as COVID-19 testing, did not function across many government hospitals in Sri Lanka.

This in turn caused serious inconveniences to the general public, according to reports.
