Tue, Jan 29, 2013, 08:31 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Jan 29, Colombo: Sri Lanka's government Veterinary Surgeons' Association has decided to launch an island wide sick note campaign tomorrow.

The protest campaign is based on several demands including a professional allowance and restructuring of the Animal Production Health Services minutes.

K.A.C.H. Kothalawala, the Chairman of the Association says that the strike is to be launched since all the other actions went unheeded.

Accordingly, the veterinary surgeons, veterinary research officers and animal husbandry officers will refrain from performing their duties for 24 hours from tomorrow morning, the Association says.

A protest demonstration is also to be held at the Lipton Circus tomorrow.
