* Nurses of government hospitals in Sri Lanka to strike tomorrow
Wed, Nov 14, 2012, 12:57 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Nov 14, Colombo: Sri Lanka Government Nursing Officers' Association has called a 24-hour token strike tomorrow. The strike will begin at 7 a.m. on November 15 and ends at 7 a.m. November 16.

The Chairman of the Government Nursing Officers' Association Saman Rathnapriya says that the strike is to demand the authorities to suspend the recruitment of nurses by the Provincial Councils, grant a five-day work week, increase overtime and other allowances, and implement the promotions of years 2011 and 2012.

The nurses' union also protests the Ministry of Health for not recruiting the graduate nurses to the service for around one and half years.

The union has exempted the Lady Ridgeway Childrens' Hospital, the Castle Street Maternity Hospital, Eye Hospital and the Cancer Hospital of Maharagama from the strike.
