Last week, the state government of Bihar, northern India, ordered that 80,000 allied health workers be sacked for taking strike action. The dispute began at the start of this month, when tens of thousands of health workers employed on short term contracts demanded regularisation of their employment status and equal pay for equal work. These workers cover many roles, including nurses, accountants, lab technicians and local health managers. The dispute is ongoing with workers taking direct actions, while the government trys to employ new health workers in a bid to break the strike.
