The Paramedical Joint Union Federation has decided to temporarily suspend the strike launched by them for 5 consecutive days, for a period of 48 hours, from 8am today.
This decision has been made following discussions held with the acting minister of health, Lalith Dissanayake.
The chief secretary of the union, Saman Jayasekera expressed these views about the discussion.
The Colombo district Court issued an enjoining order on the Para-medics’ strike on Friday after taking into consideration a petition filed by a patient of the National Hospital in Colombo.
However the Para-medics’ strike continued yesterday, noting that they didn’t receive the court order.
Various hospital services were hindered during the past 5 days due to the Para-medics’ strike.Related story published below :http://www.hirunews.lk/90766/update-paramedic-trade-unions-gather-to-take-final-decision-nurses-union-also-ready-assist
