Fri, Aug 22, 2014, 12:14 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Aug 22, Colombo: The striking junior workers of Sri Lanka's government hospitals have called off their strike this morning after they have received assurances form the authorities that their demands would be considered.

Workers of the All Ceylon Health Services Union launched an island wide strike on Wednesday 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 union has decided to call off the strike at 6.30 this morning reportedly after considering a letter signed by the Treasury Secretary Dr. Dr. P B Jayasundara.

Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa Wednesday ordered the relevant authorities to resolve the trade union issues in the health sector within three months.

The President instructed the relevant officials after considering a set of proposals presented to him by the representatives of 27 health sector trade unions on Wednesday.
