Employees resume work after assurances made
Kalar Public Hospital staff end strike amid community appeals
KALAR – The staff and doctors at Kalar Public Hospital have called off their strike, which started on January 30, due to delays in salary payments and various administrative issues.
The strike was launched with a plea for the swift resolution of these grievances, particularly the overdue salary payments.
Hars Mohammad, the hospital’s director, spoke to 964media: “Our demands have not been met, but we have been assured that our primary requests will be addressed,” Mohammad stated.
The decision to return to work was also influenced by the community’s dependence on the hospital’s services.
As the only public healthcare facility in Kalar, the hospital plays a vital role in the community.
Mohammad noted, “Many people have been asking us daily to end the boycott because it’s the only public hospital in Kalar.”
Among the staff’s demands were salary increases and the payment of 50% of the fees from the laboratory department, alongside other administrative issues.
