Mumbai civic workers protest

Nurses, ward boys and other paramedical staff have announced that they will go on indefinite strike from July 14 if they are not paid revised salaries as per the Sixth Pay Commission.

Currently, the starting salary for nurses in BMC hospitals is Rs.15,000 and the average salary for ward boys/sweepers is around Rs.10,000. If the Sixth Pay Commission is implemented, they will earn Rs.23,000 and Rs.15,000 respectively. They will also be entitled to gratuity and education allowance of up to Rs.2,000 for two children per month, as per the commission’s recommendations.

Meanwhile 8,000 civic employees have threatened to go on an indefinite strike from July 14. The employees, from octroi, development plan, health and solid waste management department are protesting against the non–payment of salaries according to the Sixth Pay Commission.

Earlier the employees had decided to go on strike from June 29 but did not, as talks were called. The talks failed and so they decided to go on strike from July 14.

The alternative is to reorient the economy to fulfil people’s
needs instead of fulfilling capitalist greed. This is the
program for the Navnirman of India.
