Medical personnel planning to strike in Solomons from tomorrow

7:59 pm on 9 October 2006

Members of the Solomon Islands Nurses Association and Medical association say they will hold a nationwide strike from tomorrow.

The Solomon Islands Broadcasting Corporation reports the strike is in support of a claim that salary increases paid to public officers in 2006, should also be extended to its members.

A joint statement from both associations says this follows the 28 day strike notice issued at the end of August.

The strike will be carried out over four days.
