Meet held to end strike of 108 ambulance workers

Representatives of Ziqitza Health Care, which runs 108 ambulance service on a contract basis in Punjab, on Wednesday met the assistant labour commissioner along with the striking employees.

Jatinder Sharma, the project head, said their legal advisor could not attend the meeting at a short notice and hence their representative Rohit Katri met the officials and sought more time for the next meeting. Another meeting will now be held on February 27.

A few employees are on strike in support of their demands.

Sharma said Ziqitza Health Care Ltd had been operating 240 ambulances across Punjab since April 3, 2011, in public-private partnership model under the supervision of the Punjab Health System Corporation (PHSC) and National Rural Health Mission (NRHM).
