Delhi AIIMS Nurses On Indefinite Strike, New Trouble For Patients In Epidemic

The Nurses Union at Delhi All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) has announced an indefinite strike from today over redressal of their demands. The 6th Central Pay Commission is also included in meeting the demand for the nurses.

AIIMS director Randeep Guleria has called the strike unfortunate and has issued a statement urging the nurses not to go on strike. In his request, Guleria said, “It’s unfortunate the union has gone on a strike now, only a few months from when a vaccine will provide the solution. I appeal to all nurses & nursing officers to not go on strike & come back & work and help us get through the pandemic.”

He also added that most of the 23 demands of nurses have been accepted by the government and AIIMS administration, but their persistent demand remains to implement the recommendations of the Sixth Pay Commission.

The union has been pressing their demands from several months now, previously on nov 17 they have threatened to go on an indefinite strike from 16th december.

The nurses are demanding redressal of issues, such as abolishment of gender-based reservation in the recruiting process of nursing officers, enhancement of hospital accommodation and cadre restructuring review, among others.
