Hundreds of employees of North East Department of Health Services Wednesday noon held a one hour demonstration at the junction along Inner Harbour Road in Trincomalee that leads to the office of Provincial Governor and later went in a procession and handed over a memorandum to a representative of the Governor demanding that they be paid the increased salary of three thousand rupees as paid to employees of other provincial councils in Sri Lanka, trade union sources said.

They demanded that the employees of the northeast health sector should be treated on par with employees in other provincial councils now administered by elected administration, sources said.

The All Ceylon Health Services Union (ACHSU) organized the protest and health sector employees from the district of Batticaloa, Amparai and Trincomalee participated, sources said.

Health sector employees later held a meeting in the children's playground located in front of the office of the provincial governor.

Trade union leaders said they would launch a trade union action crippling the entire health services if the provincial governor failed to pay the increased salary anomalies to northeast health sector employees on par with the other provincial councils before November 22, sources said.
