The private hospital managements have now disagreed to increase the minimum salary of nurses which they had earlier agreed on at a meeting called by Chief Minister of Kerala. The United Nurses Association (UNA) and the Indian Nurses Association (INA) committee will now submit its recommendation to the government and if they fail to take a positive stand, they might go for agitation.

The Hospital Management Association informed in writing to the Minimum Wages Committee that it cannot pay more than 25% hike to the employees in all categories in a hospital having less than 50 beds. In the dissent note to the committee, they said they could only give 30% hike in hospitals with 51 to 100 beds, 35% in hospitals with 101 to 300 beds and 40 percent in hospitals with more than 300 beds.

The Minimum Wages Committee will meet again on October 19 for further discussions...
