SBMCH new employees withdraw hunger strike

Staff Reporter, Barishal

Newly recruited employees of Barishal Sher-e-Bangla Medical College Hospital withdrew their fast unto death programme on Monday evening following assurance from the hospital authorities of meeting their demands.     Modasser Kabir, president of the fourth class employees’ welfare association of SBMCH, said that they ended their hunger strike and all other agitation programmes as the hospital director assured them of taking immediate steps to meet their demands.

The newly recruited employees of the hospital went on hunger strike for indefinite period demanding payment of their regular salaries and other wages.

Modasser said they ended their hunger strike by drinking water upon request of the director of the hospital Baqir Hussain and deputy director Abdur Razzak.

The hospital director said that they had sent a letter to the health ministry in favour of the employees and he hoped that they would get a positive reply within Thursday. After getting the reply, the authorities of the hospital would take further steps to fulfill their demands, he said. Due to the agitation environment of the hospital became unhealthy as the fourth class employees were sweeper and cleaners.

At the same time, medical services to the patients hampered severely as garbage and other filthy items were spreading bad smell all over the hospital in absence of the employees.

Earlier, 215 third and fourth class employees were recruited by the hospital authorities on December 12, 2015. But the health ministry suspended the joining process of the newly recruited employees on January 18, 2016.

Then the employees went to High Court against the decision of the ministry and court ordered in favour of the employees.
