Health employees go on an indefinite strike…

with 0 Comment



Group C and D health employees under the banner of the All-India Health Employees and Workers Confederation went on an indefinite strike from 6 a.m. on Monday.

Threatening to intensify the strike, Confederation convenor Ram Kishan said: “We have been forced to go on strike because the Government has failed to look into our demands. We have been demanding that our hospital patient care allowance be continued and made at par with the nursing allowance and maybe part of the basic pay. This facility should be extended to workers of all the health institutions in the country, the pay scale of paramedical services should be changed to another pay band and we demand constitution of a Paramedical Service Council of India. The outsourcing and taking in staff on contract in any form and at any level should be stopped immediately in the health sector and all the posts/works should be replaced by regular staff.”

Functioning at the Central Government Health Scheme (CGHS) and Ordnance Factories hospitals and dispensaries in the city was paralyzed on Monday as health employees across India went on an indefinite strike to protest against the central government for not fulfilling their demands.
Work at all seven CGHS dispensaries located at Lulla Nagar, Phulenagar, Cantonment, Mangalwarpeth, Boys Battalion, Range Hills and the dispensary, polyclinic and administrative office located at Mukund Nagar came to a halt.
The All India Health Employees and Workers Confederation is pressing for three demands including patient care allowance, the pay scale of paramedical services should be PB-2 instead of PB-1 and a Paramedical Service Council of India should be constituted and privatization and outsourcing of work in any form and at any level should be stopped immediately.
The striking health employees of Delhi Government had already withdrawn their stir yesterday.
