The PGI Nurses Welfare Association on Tuesday declared that the nurses of the institute at Chandigarh are going to join the protest called by All India Nurses Federation by taking a mass casual leave on February 26.
President of the association, Lakhvinder Singh said that a majority of the nurses of the PGIMER have already handed over duly filled casual leave porforma to the association in advance for submission to the PGI administration. He claimed that the mass casual leave action will be a complete success.
“The Association will also take part in all future actions called by the federation on all India level, including indefinite strike in case government is still adamant for not accepting the demands of the nurses,” he said.
“The PGI administration is also not accepting the demand of the association to frame the 6-hour duty roster for the newly recruited nurses in the PGI. We will agitate on this issue too until this demand is not accepted by the administration,” Singh said.
