According to the union, the strike will affect services their members provide in medical laboratories, blood banks, pathology laboratories, and selected mortuary facilities across the country.

This decision comes as a response to prolonged delays by the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission and the Ministry of Finance in concluding negotiations with the union.

In a statement by MELPWU on June 7, the union argued that such actions undermine the labour-management relationship and necessitate decisive action.
