Health strike continues; Ministry calls another discussion.-Video
Despite the enjoining order issued by the court, the strike staged by the paramedical staff is continuing for the 5th day today.
Another meeting is underway between Acting Health Minister Lalith Dissanayake and the trade unions involved in the strike.
The Paramedical Joint Union Federation stated that they will take a final decision regarding the strike following this meeting.
The meeting held last evening between the two factions which was chaired by Acting Health Minister was unsuccessful.
Another meeting held with Health Director General Palitha Maheepala today was also futile.
However, the executive council of the Paramedical Joint Union Federation also met this noon.
Meanwhile, Health Ministry Secretary Sudharma Karunaratne stated that the Ministry has taken necessary measures to resolve the issues of the strikers.
She further requested the strikers to return to work immediately after considering the court order issued yesterday by the Colombo District Court.
