July 20, Colombo: The joint trade union committee of the supplementary staff employees of Sri Lanka's hospitals announced they would boycott four hours of work tomorrow as a token measure.

The convener of the joint trade union committee T.H. Somarathna said the union would decide a continuous strike unless the authorities listen to their demand.

He pointed out that a continuous fasting protest is being held outside the Colombo National Hospital since July 15 based on five demands.

The demands included making the employees permanent, correction of salary anomalies, granting five-day working week, increase of overtime rates and two-day night shift.

The employees of 19 trades of supplementary staff would join the action today. The joint trade union committee has 30,000 members from 47 trades, he said.
