Officers of several branches of the Government Medical Officers’ Association (GMOA) are planning to launch a strike in connection with the Post Intern appointment list issue. Officers of the Ampara branch will launch the strike tomorrow, GMOA Secretary Dr. Nalinda Herath said.
Dr. Herath said officers at branches including Anuradhapura, Batticaloa, Polonnaruwa, Gampola and Dikoya have already issued warnings of a strike.
He said there will be no impact on flood relief health services in affected areas due to the strike. The Medical Services Director has failed to rectify the Post Intern appointment list (2016) which was amended by him after preparing it with the consent of all stake holders, Dr. Herath added.
