Delhi High Court restrains AIIMS Nurses Union from continuing with indefinite strike

    The Delhi High Court on Tuesday restrained AIIMS Nurses Union from continuing with their indefinite strike (AIIMS vs AIIMS Nurses Union).

    A single-judge Bench of Justice Navin Chawla passed an order that effect after noting that the grievances of the Union were being considered by the authorities.

    “Respondent is restrained from continuing with the strike till further orders,” the Court said.

    Justice Navin Chawla while hearing the petition through video conferencing stated, “Keeping in view the submissions and assurances made by AIIMS that it would look into the grievances of the respondents (nurses), this union is restrained from continuing the strike.” 

    AIIMS has also contended that the strike in question also violates the court’s earlier order in case of “Court on its own motion Vs All India Institute of Medical Sciences (WPC 5166/2001)”, which prohibits the AIIMS employees from involving in any such activity.

    Nurses of AIIMS declared an indefinite strike on Monday due to their pending demands, including the implementation of the Sixth Central Pay Commission. The bench has listed the matter for further hearing on January 18.
