Oct 28, Colombo: The Government Medical Officers Association (GMOA), the powerful union of Sri Lanka's government doctors, has announced that it would carry out an island wide strike next month.
The GMOA has announced that the association would launch an island wide strike on November 4th to win several demands.
GMOA says that the association and the Ministries of Health and Public Administration and Home Affairs have reached an agreement two years ago on the promotions granted to doctors.
However, the government has failed to implement the agreement.
According to the GMOA, the island wide strike is to be carried out to demand for the promotions of doctors and three other issues.
