All Island health strike continues for the 4th day.


The strike launched by the Paramedical Joint Union Federation is underway for the 4th consecutive day today.


Treatment at government hospitals has reached crisis levels due to the continuous strike by the members of the Paramedical joint union federation.


Secretary of the union Saman Jayasekara stated that if authorities are not making an attempt to resolve the issue, they will intensify the trade union action.


Meanwhile Health Minister Maithreepala Sirisena who is currently in Geneva released a notice and requested the strikers to call off the strike as their demands are under consideration.
