Mizoram nurses join nationwide protest
Aizawl, Aug 23: Hundreds of trained nurses took to streets in Aizawl today joining the nationwide protest rally called by Trained Nurses' Association of India to press for their 11-point charter of demands.
Mizoram state branch of the Trained Nurses' Association of India submitted a memorandum to the state government demanding equal salaries and allowances to all trained nurses under the state government with those working under the central government, filling up of vacancies, appointment of nurses in proportion to patient load and discontinuation of recruitment of staff nurses on contract basis or on minimal salary.
“A wide and innumerable disparities of salaries of nurses in the states seems to irrelevant and thus all states including Mizoram should follow central government pay and allowance of nurses for the nurses recruited in the state,” the memorandum said.
Demanding filling up of posts, the memorandum pointed out that there are 107 posts for staff nurses, 40 for ward superintendents, 11 for public health nurses, 116 for health workers, 106 for health supervisors and 20 for health community officers lying vacant under the state government.
Association leaders said trained nurses in private hospitals were paid paltry salaries, drawing a minimum daily wage of Rs 250-350.
The Mizoram unit TNAI had filed a writ petition in the Supreme Court in 2011, seeking welfare of nurses by enhancing their salary structure and working conditions.
The apex court issued a notice to the Centre and all the state governments in 2013, following which a committee was constituted under the ministry of health and family welfare in 2016 to study the pay structure and working conditions of nurses. The committee, based on information collected from states, submitted a report in June 2016, pointing out glaring anomalies in the pay structure and pathetic working condition of nurses across the country.
The nurses’ leaders said the committee recommended that nurses working in a 200-bed private hospital should draw a salary on a par with that drawn by nurses under the state government for a corresponding grade.
They said a nurse working in a private hospital having more than 100 beds should get a salary not less than 10 per cent of that drawn by a state government nurse and not less than 25 per cent in case of a 50-100-bed hospital. The salary given to a nurse should not be less than Rs 20,000 per month even in 50-bed private hospitals, she added.
Working conditions such as leaves, working hours, medical facilities, transportation and accommodation should be on a par with the benefits granted to state government nurses working in the respective states and Union territories, she added.
They said the Mizoram government had constituted an eight-member expert committee on October 28, 2016 to formulate guidelines for the benefit of nurses working in private hospitals and institutions but the matter did not proceed further despite repeated appeals.
