Nurses workers have been on strike at the Delhi AIIMS for a long time due to the Corona epidemic. On Monday, nurses quit their jobs at the Delhi AIIMS and began protesting on campus. The workers went on strike that afternoon.

The nurses’ union alleges that the AIIMS management and the government ignored their demands. If their demands are not met, they will go on indefinite strike from December 1. Meanwhile, news of the strike shocked the entire AIIMS. The strike did not affect the OPD or the emergency department, but it did create problems for the treatment of hospitalized patients.

For this reason, the director of AIIMS, Dr. Randeep Guleria reached the video message union in the evening. Dr. Guleria says the management and the government have accepted all the demands of the nurses’ union, but not a single demand has been met. The demand to increase the salaries of the employees has been emphasized in the recommendation of the Sixth Pay Commission which is not possible at present. Management is working in this direction, but in the midst of an epidemic where everyone is fighting a war. In such a case, not only will the AIIMS strike tarnish the image of the AIIMS, but also the patients.

Harish Kumar, president of the AIIMS Nursing Union, says his demands have been discussed with management for a long time. A month ago, the union told management to give time if the demand was not met and the employee had no choice but to quit his job.

Harish says that AIIMS is an institution for every employee and doctor. They are also responsible for all the patients who come here. The Nurses Union does not want any hindrance in the treatment of the patient, but the management should also think about how they can better contribute to the corona crisis day and night if the demands of the employees are not heeded.

Harish Kumar, president of the AIIMS Nursing Union, says outside workers have been called on contract after the nursing staff went on an indefinite strike at the Delhi AIIMS on Monday. The Delhi AIIMS has temporarily deployed nurses to provide medical services to the patients.

He said AIIMS nursery workers have long been appealing to the health director or health director. Some time ago, the Director of AIIMS was also present with the Health Minister. At that time all the demands were accepted but have not been implemented yet. Now that the nurses’ union has started protesting, AIIMS management has invited workers from outside to sign contracts. This behavior of AIIMS management is not acceptable under any circumstances. On the other hand, the AIIMS management has not responded to the union’s allegations.
