Mysore/Mysuru: The indefinite protest launched by Contract Staff Nurses functioning at K.R. and Cheluvamba Hospitals, seeking fulfilment of their various demands, entered the sixth day today.
Over 150 Contract Staff Nurses serving in these two State-run Hospitals are on protest since July 9, seeking fulfilment of their various demands, which chiefly included a hike in monthly wages and timely distribution of safety kits to all of them in the wake of COVID.
Arguing that their demands are just, they said that they are deputed for COVID-19 duty and the absence of safety kits poses a serious health risk for them.
Claiming that despite several representations, the Government is yet to consider their demands, they said they have launched the indefinite protest by wearing black bands to draw the attention of the Government to their plight.
Contract Nurses Association office-bearers Mahesh, Santosh, Ashok, Anita and others led the protest.
