Apr 30, Colombo: Nurses attached to Sri Lanka's state hospitals have decided to strike work on Thursday if the government fails to resolve the dispute between the nurses and the Doctors and Midwives at Government hospitals.

The Public Services United Nurses Association has decided to refrain from reporting to duty on May 01.

The chairperson of the union, Muruththettuwe Ananda Thero has demanded that the Minister of Health or the Secretary of Health should create a suitable working environment for the nurses at the government hospitals.
