Health Ministry Cracks Whip On Nurses

Nov 10, 2010 5:21:47 AM - thesundayleader.lk

The Health Ministry today (10) said that all nursing staff who did not report to work as part of a trade union action to stay away after applying for sick leave will be considered as having vacated their posts.

Nursing staff in several hospitals had applied for sick leave following a decision by the Government Nursing Officers’ Association (GNOA) to resort to trade union action based on several demands.

Meanwhile, Health Minister Maithripala Sirisena yesterday (9) requested nurses in state hospitals to boycott the trade union action to launch a sick note campaign.
