Dec 06, Colombo: Medical Laboratory Technologists at Sri Lanka government hospitals have planned to walk away from work today as a token measure to set forth several demands.

Accordingly, services at all the medical laboratories of the island will be put on hold for five hours from 12 noon to 5 p.m.

However, emergency services at Colombo National Hospital, Children's hospital, cancer hospital and other teaching hospitals will not be hampered by the strike action.

Janaka Nishantha, the president of the Sri Lanka Association of Government Medical Laboratory Technologists said the workers clad in black will peacefully demonstrate at the Ministry of Health this afternoon.

He said that protest is based on a demand to streamline the educational courses of the Medical Laboratory Technologists in the Medical Faculty of Colombo University.
