On Saturday morning, July 25th, a group of 100 nurses of Tehran’s Ruzbeh Hospital went on strike. They rallied in the hospital’s courtyard and made their strike and protests very public.
On July 27th, in the city of Yasuj (south Iran) nurses were seen continuing their protests. “We are a number of nurses who passed our exams last year. However, five months later we have yet to receive any of our paychecks or premiums,” a nurse said.
Nurses in Kermanshah, western Iran, staged more rallies on Tuesday, July 21, protesting not receiving their paychecks. These nurses also rallied against policies practiced by the Health Ministry in violation of their rights.
Nurses in Tehran’s Najmiye Hospital went on strike and continued for a few hours. Eyewitness reports indicate dozens of nurses took part in this strike. They, too, were protesting various plans proposed by the Health Ministry and the lack of any equality in receiving their paychecks.
