Health TU protests against medical staff allocations

The Joint Health Workers Union (JHWU) released a statement to the media today (07) and held a protest, requesting for proper protocols to be followed when allocating medical staff from outstation to Colombo suburbs and vice versa, and not to allow for political influence to be used. 

The statement mentioned that certain medical staff have not been given the chance to be relocated to their hometowns, despite having worked for many years out of their hometowns.

The JHWU statement went on to say that many staff have used political influence to reinstate themselves, whereas people who do not have influence remain helpless.
