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.
