TN: Nurses demand regularization of services after being terminated from work before end of contract
Vellore: After being terminated from work by Tamil Nadu Government, more than 100 nurses employed on a contract basis at the COVID care centers have submitted a petition to the Chief Minister's cell at the Secretariat demanding regularization of their services.
These nurses were appointed for a period of 3 months in May this year to serve at the COVID care centers especially during the second wave.
"On June 30, we were asked not to come for work. We request the State government to consider our plea on regularisation of our work," K. Vaitheswari, a nurse from Gudiyatham near Vellore told the daily.
With the authorities discharging the nurses from duties even before 3 months, they have approached higher authorities demanding regularization of the post. They submitted a plea seeking immediate redressal of their grievances by the government.
