KGMU Staff to on Indefinite strike from December 17
Medical services administrations might be hampered at the Lucknow’s King George's Medical University (KGMU) as the Employees' Council has announced to go on an endless strike from December17 in fight over the postponement in framework rebuilding.
During a media interaction Pradip Gangwar, president of KGMU Employees' Council said "For more than five years, we have been hanging tight for unit rebuilding at standard with the SGPGIMS and wage revision. We boycotted work in November and later got affirmation from the state government, we postponed our strike and resumed service. We are currently compelled to observe an endless strike to draw authorities’ attention towards us,"
Indeed, even representatives sent at crisis administrations at Trauma Center and different departments could be halted from working and that would make significant burden on patients. There are approximately 9,000 staff at KGMU, including paramedics, professionals, medical caretakers and the strike can hamper work at OPD, diagnostic offices and even OTs. KGMU authorities said they were making an effort to convince not to take to the action and cooperate with the authorities. If the strike continues for an indefinite time, the repercussions would be hard to tackle.
