The Government Medical Officers’s Association (GMOA) has postponed the strike which was to be launched tomorrow on the SAITM issue by one week.
The strike has been postponed taking into consideration several matters. The Catholic church had today requested that the strike be suspended owing to the spread of dengue.
Government doctors staged a similar strike last month but the strike was later suspended following talks with the President.
However subsequently the Government announced it will not have future talks with the GMOA on the SAITM issue. (Colombo Gazette)
