Newly appointed LHC nurses allegedly

first_imgCouncillor within the Region 10 (Upper Demerara-Berbice) Regional Democratic Council (RDC), Gordon Callender, is urging that attention be paid to the plight of recently appointed nurses to the Linden Hospital Complex, whom, he noted, have recently complained of several issues affecting them. According to Callender, the nurses, who commenced work in January following extensive training, would have collected appointment letters as registered nurses but have complained of still being paid monthly stipends, instead of salaries.“This is August; eight months and they have not received one paycheque… and the ladies rowing, saying how they ain’t got nobody to represent them… so those are matters that we need to look into from the Ministry of Labour or whoever has the power maybe to find out…,” Callender stated. At the time he was addressing members of the RDC at a monthly statutory meeting.According to Callender, further complaints by the affected nurses also indicate that deductions are also made from their stipends. He is calling on members of the hospital board and relevant ministries to look into the issue.last_img read more
