The Delhi High Court on Tuesday restrained AIIMS Nurses Union from continuing with their indefinite strike (AIIMS vs AIIMS Nursing Union).
A single-judge Bench of Justice Navin Chawla passed an order that effect after noting that the grievances of the Union were being considered by the authorities.
“Respondent is restrained from continuing with the strike till further orders,” the Court said.
The order was passed in a petition by the All-India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS).
Issuing notice in the petition, court sought response from the Union.
AIIMS contended that the strike was illegal and in violation of the Industrial Disputes Act.
It was also asserted that the strike by the nurses violated an order passed by the court prohibiting any such action by AIIMS employees.
The matter would be heard next on January 18, 2021.
