NEW DELHI: The technicians have warned that the protest will be intensified if their demands, including the implementation of 7th CPC recommendations, are not accepted.
Demanding implementation of the 7th pay commission recommendations and immediate cadre restructuring, hundreds of medical lab technicians employed in Delhi Government hospitals gathered outside the GB Pant Hospital on September 1, 2017, and took out a protest march to the office of the Dean, Maulana Azad Medical College, and staged a 'dharna' there.
After submitting memorandum, the workers warned of a continuous protest-cum-pen-down-strike from September 6, 2017, in case their demands are not met.
The protesting technicians, under the banner of Indian Medical Laboratory Technologist Federation, had handed over a memorandum to Delhi chief minister Arnind Kejriwal last month warning of a pen-down strike over their long pending issues.
"The response of the Delhi government on our pending issues has been highly disappointing. We met almost every concerned officer, from health secretary to chief secretary and health minister to chief minister many times but we could not find any appropriate solution to our demands,” Pooja Saini, chairperson of the federation and one of the agitators said.
