Nurses to launch token strike
A one-day strike will be held in a number of hospitals in the Western Province today (22) to protest against the Health Secretary's refusal to take into consideration a number of requests made by the Public Service United Nurses' Union said the President of the Association Ven. Murutthettuwe Ananda Thera.
Ven. Ananda Thera said that it was difficult for not only the doctors but also the Director-General of Health Services to meet the Health Secretary and pointed out that the Health Secretary was acting arbitrarily and that his association condemned his actions.
