* State sector doctors of Sri Lanka call off today's island wide strike
Thu, Jan 30, 2014, 01:43 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Jan 30, Colombo: The powerful trade union of state sector doctors in Sri Lanka has called off the island wide strike that was to be launched this morning after holding discussions with the Minister of Health Maithripala Sirisena.

The Government Medical Officers Association (GMOA) earlier had decided to launch an indefinite island-wide strike on Thursday at all government hospitals to demand the authorities to immediately implement the Medical Service Minutes.

However, following a lengthy discussion with the Health Minister and Health Secretary Dr. Nihal Jayathilaka yesterday over the Service Minutes issue the GMOA has decided to call off the strike, the GMOA President Dr. Anuruddha Padeniya told media.

The GMOA says the Public Service Commission (PSC) has delayed the implementation of the Service Minute of government doctors and the delay has resulted in many doctors facing problems in transfers, promotions and salary increments.
