The All Ceylon Dengue Prevention Assistants Association (ACDPAA) too has joined the trade union action initiated by the Public Health Inspectors (PHIs).
“They have informed that they too would be joining the trade union action and refrain from taking part in Covid-19-related activities,” National Dengue Control Unit Director General Dr. Anura Jayasekara told a local daily.
He said however that the ACDPAA would attend to their official duties.
“They will still continue with their official duties and handle the dengue control and prevention measures. They were helping with the Covid-19 situation in addition to their official dengue-related duties.”
Noting that there were 1,200 officials with the ACDPAA, Dr. Jayasekara said they didn’t have an official union.
“They have informed us as they are a part of the larger National Dengue Control Unit, but they themselves do not have a union of their own.”
