108 ambulance workers stage protest

Nov 20, 2020 12:49 IST

At a time when most people cannot do without their help and their services, hundreds of workers working for the 108 ambulance service took to the streets on Friday to protest against several issues including non-availability of facilities for the pilots, EMTs and EROs working almost round the clock for the ambulance service. Since the start of COVID in March these workers have been in the forefront in the medical fraternity’s war against COVID. But now after over seven months, the workers have alleged that their remuneration is not at par, they have been denied proper healthcare facilities and many of them are yet to get their employment regularised. There are about 3000 workers working with the 108 Mritunjay ambulance service of Assam.
