The Government Medical Officers Association (GMOA) said today said the Public Services Commission had approved one of the demands in the Medical Service Minute and therefore it had postponed the trade union action which was to be held tomorrow.
It had earlier threatened to launch an indefinite strike tomorrow against the delay in issuing the gazette notification on the Medical Service Minute.
“We postponed the strike as the Public Services Commission (PSC) approved the Medical Service Minute on Grade promotions of medical officers. The Service Minute was also approved by the Cabinet,” GMOA spokesman Naveen De Soysa told a news conference today.
However he said the PSC had mentioned that it needed cabinet approval of transfers of medical officers, which was also in the Service Minute. (Lahiru Pothmulla)
