Fri, Jul 4, 2014, 10:47 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

July 04, Colombo: The Chairman of Sri Lanka's Public Service United Nurses' Union (PSUNU) Muruttettuwe Ananda Thero said that his union of 28,000 nurses would call a strike next week against two rival trade unions.

The PSUNU demanded the Government Medical Officers' Association (GMOA) and the Government Family Health Services Union (GFHSU) to refrain from deepening the professional crisis between the nurses and the midwives.

PSUNU chairman further stated that in the Ragama hospital where the clashes spread among the employees, the nurses have decided not to support the doctors in volunteer tasks in the hospital.

PSUNU charged that the GMOA was behind the creation and deepening of the problems between the nursing and midwife professions.

The midwives in government hospitals have demanded to release them from the administration of the special grade nursing officers.
