Minister Slams Health Sector Unions

Dec 14, 2010 3:59:03 AM - thesundayleader.lk

Health Minister Maithripala Sirisena has said that trade unions in the country were not keen to serve their membership or the people, but were trying to attain political objectives.

Sirisena has told the media that some 100,000 health sector employees are involved in 104 trade unions and that only 54 of the trade unions are active.

He has added that a few health sector trade unions with a handful of members were trying to disrupt the health care system in state health care institutions.

According to the Minister, the government would not be in a position to provide a 100% successful health service to its people as long as the health sector employees have a negative mentality.
