The Government Nursing Officers Association stated that it will call off the strike with effect from 7am tomorrow which disrupted functions of hospital throughout the country for the last three days.
The strike was launched by three nursing trade unions three days ago, and Government Service United Nurses Association President Muruth-thettuwe Ananda Thera withdrew from the strike yesterday.
However the strike crippled health services in many hospitals throughout as nurses did not report for duty today.
None of the nursing staff of the Colombo South Teaching Hospital reported for duty this morning therefore the hospital administration sought the assistance of medical students to carry out healthcare activities.
Although the two main nurses unions agreed to call off the strike the JVP affiliated All Ceylon Nurses Association President Gamini Kumarasinghe said that his union will continue the strike.
Meanwhile the GMOA as well as the Government Nursing Officers Association charged each other during different media briefings organized by the two organizations in Colombo this afternoon.
Both parties made allegations against the nursing trade union run by Muruth-thettuwe Ananda Thera as well.
