Day 3 of strike

NHM staff hand over memo at DC office

Hoshiarpur, November 25

The National Health Mission employees’ strike here today entered its third day. A memorandum was handed over by the NHM staff to Ashok Kumar, Assistant Commissioner (General) at the DC office today. The employees of NHM said the clerical, medical and para-medical employees working under Health Department have been recruited through proper process as per the instructions of Punjab Government. They have been providing their best services for the past 15 years on meagre salaries yet the government has overlooked their demands.

The non-inclusion of NHM workers in the recent Punjab Protection and Regularisation of Contractual Employees Bill 2021, which has been framed to regularise Punjab’s contractual employees, is a total betrayal for them.
