The Para-medics of the North, the East and the North Central Provinces have launched a strike this morning against delaying promotions and slashing the duration of the Allied Health Science degree.

Our correspondents report that functions in Para-medic units such as issuing of drugs of government hospitals have been crippled.

The strike is now on in several hospitals including Anuradhapura, Polonnaruwa, Jaffna, Batticaloa, Trincomalee, Mannar and Vavuniya.

General Secretary of Joint Federation of Para Medic Services Unions Saman Jayasekera said that the strike will be extended to North Western, Uva and Sabaragamuwa provinces as well unless their demands are not met within today.

Meanwhile the Government Nursing Officers Association stated that their strike on midwifery training dispute was called off at 7am today.

However nurses unions are still engaged in the strike at Kurunegala and Kuliyapitiya hospitals. Government Services United Nursing Association Secretary Asoka Abeynayake described the reasons to continue the strike.

Although the Government Services United Nursing Association and the Government Nursing Officers Association have ended the strike, members of the JVP affiliated All Ceylon Nurses Association are engaged in the strike today too.

Our correspondents reported that hospital functions at Kandy, Matale and Kalutara have been slightly affected.

However All Ceylon Nurses Association President Gamini Kumarasinghe told our news team that his union has decided to end the strike this afternoon.
