NHM employees begin pen down strike

DIMAPUR, NOVEMBER 10 (MExN): Aggrieved employees of the National Health Mission (NHM), Nagaland started their pen down strike today as no assurance was received from the government on the release of their pending salaries.

It further informed that the employees had received a communique from the Mission Director, NHM, requesting for postponement of the strike. “However no assured commitment was mentioned, therefore, the employees are now left with no other option but to begin the strike till the State Government immediately releases the fund and also give written assurance on the same on or before November 17, so that our salary along with the increment, one time loyalty, arrears of 2016 and arrears from April 2017 are paid to us as approved in the ROP 2017-2018,” the statement added.


The aggrieved employees meanwhile asked the public to bear with the inconvenience during the duration of the strike.
