Health strike continues despite court order


The Paramedical Joint Union Federation says that there is no change in the strike launched by them.


They noted that the discussion held last afternoon with the acting minister of health Lalith Dissanayake, was also futile.


The executive committee of the paramedics which met thereafter has decided to continue the strike.


The Colombo district Court issued an enjoining order on the Para-medics’ strike that affected functions of the government hospitals for the last four days.


The court issued the order after considering a petition filed by a patient of the Colombo National hospital.


Accordingly Colombo district judge Sujatha Alahapperuma issued the interim order until the case is taken again for hearing on September 12th.


When we made inquiries in this regard a senior spokesperson of the Paramedical Joint Union Federation said that they are yet to receive the court order and therefore they will continue the strike.
