Aug 20, Colombo: The junior workers of Sri Lanka's government hospitals have launched a work strike today to win several demands including a salary increase.

Workers of the All Ceylon Health Services Union launched an island wide strike demanding the government to include implementation of 6/2006 circular on salary structure and paying the arrears, making the casual workers permanent and one-day night shift.

The Convener of the National Trade Union Center Samantha Koralearachchi has said that 50,000 health workers have been affected by the problems related to the demands. He also said that all the discussions and peaceful protests have gone to the deaf ears and they had no other option but striking.

The union also launched a strike on August 13 inconveniencing the low income patients who are seeking services from government hospitals.
