The Government Nursing Officers’ Association has stepped back from the strike action launched by 18 trade unions responding to the Health Sector.
The Colombo District Court on February 10 issued an enjoining order barring the holding of the strike action against the Government Nurses Association and its Chairman Saman Rathnapriya. The union, nevertheless, continued the strike action till today (12).
In obedience to the Court order, the Union has decided to temporarily step back from the strike action.
The rest of the 17 trade unions, on the other hand, continue to endorse the strike action.
Meanwhile, President today issued an extraordinary gazette declaring the Health Service and Power Supply as essential services.
