* Sri Lanka's nurses' union calls off the strike
Wed, Apr 2, 2014, 10:06 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Apr 02, Colombo: Sri Lanka's Government Nursing Officers' Association (GNOA) announced that the planned one day token strike for tomorrow, April 3 in the state hospitals island wide had been called off.

GNOA Chairman Saman Rathnapriya said that the strike was called off due to the positive response from the Ministry of Health.

The union had called for the strike to protest moves to revoke the decision to provide midwifery training to all student nurses.

Rathnapriya however said that the union would resort to stern trade union action if the Ministry of Health changed its position on midwifery training.

The Ministry of Health has appointed a medical technical expert committee to resolve the dispute between the nurses and the family health officials and has asked the relevant unions not to resort to trade union action.
