AIIMS nurses go on lightning strike, a flashback to 1970s
COMMENT: The nursing staff union at the AIIMS is on indefinite strike, not because some injustice has been done to any of them. They are dictating how the AIIMS should make appointments. Rather, they have decided that the AIIMS should not make contractual appointments. It reminds one of the union days of 1970s when, whether private or Government, an employee could not even be shifted from one section to another without triggering a strike. There used to be thousands of workers' unions on the roads in Delhi those days every day, striking work and blocking traffic. Nobody could do anything about it. All these were due to the self-seeking leaders who were building up their parties and canvassing their vote banks; and they were the real exploiters. Our type of democracy allowed it. And who were the losers in that game? The working class, getting a pension of Rs 500 per month today! They would have been, instead, flourishing today with prosperity and self-respect, without any 'ism'. In a genuine democratic set-up this type of decadent unionism will not rear its head. Because those opportunities will be absent. India does not have such a 'functional democracy,' a democracy that will work for everyone. It is not in our Constitution!

NEW DELHI, Dec 15: Around 5,000 nurses at the AIIMS in Delhi went on an indefinite, lightning strike on Monday to press their demands such as Sixth Pay Commission scales and ending of contractual recruitment. Hospital services have been badly affected.

AIIMS Director Randeep Guleria said the nurses union had pressed for 23 demands and almost all of them had been met by the administration and the Government.

He said in a message, "I appeal to all the nurses and nursing officers not to go on strike, and not to make us feel embarrassed about the dignity that we have as far as the nurses are concerned. I, therefore, appeal to all of you to come back and work and really help us get through this pandemic."

The strike was earlier scheduled to start from December 16 but was preponed as fresh contractual recruitment were starting despite their objection. They were also demanding enhancement of hospital accommodation and cadre restructuring.

The AIIMS issued a statement stating the nursing union has gone on a strike in contravention of a direction of the High Court of Delhi in relation to "Code of Conduct" laid down whereby no employee or staff or faculty member will cease work for any reason whatsoever or shout slogans or hold demonstrations within the campus or hold gate meeting within 500 metres radius of the institute boundary.
