Some J’pura nurses on strike

3 January 2018 11:29 am - 5     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Around 150 nursing staff attached to the Sri Jayewardenepura General Hospital (SJGH) had refused to report to duty today in protest of a newly introduced fingerprint machine, SJGH Director Dr. Susitha Senaratne said.

Dr. Senaratne said the group of nurses staying at the nurses’ quarters had refused to report to duty until the fingerprint machine was removed.

He said that earlier discussions had been held with the nurses’ trade union regarding the matter, but were not successful.

“However, hospital authorities will discuss the matter with Government Nursing Officers Union (GNOU) President Ven. Muruththettuwe Ananda Thera in a short while,” he said.

Dr. Senaratne said the protest however had not impacted hospital services. (Thilanka Kanakarathna)

    There is no valid reason for the strike. It shows clearly shows that someone is signing the attendance for them.

    Finger print machine is so important to increase the quality of Discipline. Nurses should be educated on the importance of it.
