Medical Laboratory Professionals Embark On Nationwide Strike

Medical laboratory professionals have embarked on a nationwide strike today, June 17, 2024.

The notice complies with Section 159 of the Labour Act, 2003 (Act 651).

The Medical Laboratory Professionals Workers Union, in a statement, indicated that their strike has been necessitated by the government's undue delay in negotiations with the union.

Additionally, the lack of financial clearance for non-mechanized members of their union is another reason for their strike.

The union stated that it would resist any form of intimidation.

As a result of the strike, medical laboratory services in blood banks, pathology laboratories, and selected mortuary facilities will be impacted.
