CM Office Intervenes, Nurses Put off Strike in State

The decision was taken on Saturday after the CMO stated it is ready to hold talks over the issues raised by the nurses, including wages.

If the nurses go ahead with their strike plan, private hospitals will have to limit themselves to providing emergency care, said the Association of Healthcare Providers, India, (AHPI) Kerala chapter, the Association of Advanced Speciality Healthcare Institutions, and the Kerala Private Hospitals Association. The officials have said that the association will go on with the strike, no matter what the legal actions might be, if the wages are not increased.

Administrative Reforms Commission Chairman and senior CPM leader V S Achuthanandan has urged the government to ensure that private hospital nurses are paid the salaries instructed by the Supreme Court.

Meanwhile, the Kerala High Court had on Friday barred nurses' organisations from resorting to their proposed indefinite strike from July 17.

Justice Kumar also issued notices to four nurses organisation and the state government, seeking their stands on the plea.

The United Nurses' Association has chose to defer the proposed indefinite strike in the private hospitals of the state from July 17 in view of the High Court's directive to hold mediation talks on July 19.

On Thursday, private managements running hospitals in Thiruvananthapuram said that the medical services provided by them will be limited from Monday.

However, the United Nurses Association (UNA), that has been at the forefront of the protest, maintained that they will not end the strike till their demands are met.
