Some Sri Jayewardenepura General Hospital Nurses On Strike
Date Posted: 03/Jan/2018
Around 150 nursing staff attached to the Sri Jayewardenepura General Hospital (SJGH) had refused to report to duty today in protest of a newly introduced fingerprint machine, SJGH Director Dr. Susitha Senaratne said.
 
Dr. Senaratne said the group of nurses staying at the nurses’ quarters had refused to report to duty until the fingerprint machine was removed.
 
He said that earlier discussions had been held with the nurses’ trade union regarding the matter, but were not successful.
 
“However, hospital authorities will discuss the matter with Government Nursing Officers Union (GNOU) President Ven. Muruththettuwe Ananda Thera in a short while,” he said.
 
Dr. Senaratne said the protest however had not impacted hospital services. (Thilanka Kanakarathna)
