JNIMS employees stage protest demanding pay hike

The employees were demanding a hike in their pay scales to the scales recommended by the 7th Central Pay Commission. They threatened to launch intense forms of agitations from coming Monday if the state government fails to consider their demand on or before the set deadline.

Employees of Jawaharlal Nehru Institute of Medical Sciences (JNIMS), the biggest state-run hospital in Manipur, ceased their duties of the day and staged a protest inside the hospital campus.

The employees were demanding a hike in their pay scales to the scales recommended by the 7th Central Pay Commission. They threatened to launch intense forms of agitations from coming Monday if the state government fails to consider their demand on or before the set deadline.

The employees staged the protest under the banner of the three different associations of the employees – JNIMS Teachers’ Association, Non-Teaching Association and Nurses’ Association of the institute. “We want 7th pay,” read one of the placards displayed by the protesting staff who staged the protest in front of the office of the medical superintendent of the hospital. The employees staged the protest after taking mass casual leave for the day.

Taking part in the protest JNIMS Teachers’ Association spokesperson, Dr Y Sanatomba said that even as the state government had already adopted the pay structures recommended by the 7th Pay Commission, the same is yet to be adopted to the employees of the hospital run under a society with chief minister as chairman. He further alleged that RIMS employees have already enjoyed the 7th Pay but no such pay hike has been effected for JNIMS employees till date.

“It is a matter of grave concern that JNIMS employees are being denied their due rights when more than 220 healthcare providers of the institute have been suffering from all kinds of difficulties after they contracted COVID-19”, he said.
