Contractual nurses call off cease-work agitation




 The contractual nurses appointed under National Health Mission (NHM), who were on a cease-work protest for the last ten days, decided to put their agitation on hold today. They will join duty from tonight.

According to reports, the NHM nurses decided to put their agitation on hold till March next year after the State government assured to fulfill their seven point-charter of demands. Healthcare services in government-run hospitals in the State were heavily affected by the cease-work agitation of the contractual NHM nurses for the last ten days.

They had launched the strike to press their various demands. They have been demanding regularisation of job and hike in salary alleging that they get remuneration of mere Rs 10,700 a month while regular government staff nurses get around Rs 30,000 to Rs 50,000 including dearness, house rent and also uniform allowances depending on their seniority.
