* Nurses' strike at Sri Jayewardenepura Hospital ends after talks
Sat, Jan 13, 2018, 10:15 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Jan 13, Colombo: Following successful discussions with hospital authorities, the nurses' union at Sri Jayewardenepura Hospital (SJGH) has decided to end their 10-day long trade union action and return to work this morning.

The nurses' union launched the strike on January 3rd to protest against the use of a fingerprint system introduced to record hospital employees' attendance times.

Chairman of the SJGH Dr. Athula Kahandaliyanage said the decision was taken following the discussion held yesterday with the hospital authorities.

Secretary of the Public Services United Nurses Union at the SJH Chaminda Rodrigo said the hospital authorities agreed to remove the fingerprint system to record 'IN' and 'OUT' times temporarily and as usual, the employees will sign the attendance log from today. However, in the future a method accepted by the Health Ministry will be used to register the signatures of nurses reporting to duty.
