Health Workers to launch strike action on November 24-25

The Federation of Health Professionals has decided to launch a strike action on November 24 and 25, involving Supplementary Medical Professionals, Nurses, Paramedical Professionals and a number of other workers in the Health Sector, revealed Ravi Kumudesh, Convener of the Federation.

In the recent past, token strike actions were organised based on seven demands including the elimination of salary anomalies, declaring the Health Service as a closed service and the formulation of an equal policy for additional allowances, but the authorities have not yet provided solutions, Kumudesh noted.

Should the authorities continue to maintain a silent policy over the issues, there is no other option for the health workers but to launch a strike action, he added.
