Amid COVID pandemic, nurses go on strike

The All Ceylon Nurses’ Union has decided to engage in a trade union action from this morning(May 31).

General Secretary of the Union H. M. S. B. Mediwatta said they have resorted to the trade union action due to the failure of the health authorities to provide proper solutions to the issues faced by nurses engaged in COVID-19 treatment.

Accordingly, the members of the union will launch the trade union action by reporting sick leave from June 01, he added.
