Bengaluru: Members of the Karnataka State Health Contractual and Outsourced Employees’ Association (KSHCOEA), who are at the forefront of the battle against Covid, have written a letter to PM Narendra Modi complaining about the lack of Covid incentives, medical expense reimbursements, job security and more.

In a letter to the Prime Minister, they wrote that like regular health department staff, they too work at Covid Care, district health and vaccination centres, but the State has announced Covid medical expenses reimbursement only to regular health department staff.

Also, the State’s special Covid incentives do not include Group D staff, counsellors, and ambulance drivers.

The association members also said that as they do not have job security because they are contractual staff, they too should be employed till they are 60 years old.

They have also sought a 25 percent hike in salaries like the regular government health staff.

It may be recalled that the State Government recently agreed to sanction Covid-risk incentives to clinical cadres, but excluded all contractual and outsourced employees, KSHCOEA pointed out.
