The Paramedical Joint Union Federation says that there is no change in the strike launched by them.

They noted that the discussion held last afternoon with the acting minister of health Lalith Dissanayake, was also futile.

The executive committee of the paramedics which met thereafter has decided to continue the strike.

The Colombo district Court issued an enjoining order on the Para-medics’ strike that affected functions of the government hospitals for the last four days.

The court issued the order after considering a petition filed by a patient of the Colombo National hospital.

Accordingly Colombo district judge Sujatha Alahapperuma issued the interim order until the case is taken again for hearing on September 12th.

When we made inquiries in this regard a senior spokesperson of the Paramedical Joint Union Federation said that they are yet to receive the court order and therefore they will continue the strike.

Enjoining order issued on Paramedics strike.

The Colombo district Court issued an enjoining order on the Para-medics’ strike that affected functions of the government hospitals for the last four days.

The court issued the order after considering a petition filed by a patient of the Colombo National hospital.

Accordingly Colombo district judge Sujatha Alahapperuma issued the interim order until the case is taken again for hearing on September 12th.

Our news team then contacted Supplementary Medical Services Trade Union Joint Federation’s President Dharmakeerthi Epa to comment on their reactions to the court order.

He told that his trade union’s executive board will discuss further actions after the particular court order is received by them.

However a discussion was scheduled between the trade unions and the Acting Health Minister at 6 o’clock this evening in order to settle the matter.

Meanwhile another meeting on the Para-medics’ demands was held between the health ministry secretary and the officers of the government treasury this morning.

A senior health ministry spokesman told our news team that they will inform the outcome of the meeting to trade union representatives.

Many hospitals throughout the country did not function properly today too due to the Para medics strike.
