About 50 nurses and other medical personnel working at the Udon Thani provincial hospital have protested to the management over its alleged failure to pay them hazard allowances for having to work long hours during the COVID-19 pandemic since last year.

 

The frontline medics staged a protest in the grounds of the hospital this morning (Tuesday) before moving to the provincial hall, to submit a petition to Governor Sayam Sirimongkol. The petition letter was received by the provincial health chief, Dr. Paramet Kingko.

 

One of the protesting medics told the media that, during the first wave of the pandemic between March-October last year, they were promised, by the management, that each of them would receive hazard allowances, amounting to 1% of their monthly pay, but only 600 out of the 3,500 staff at the hospital have been paid the allowances to date.

nothing more to add except where is all the money going with all these emergency budgets that have been approved over the last 8 months - there is absolutely no financial  accountability - hundreds of billions of baht where has it all gone 

 

Following the recent banking theft which hit the news these last few days it pales to insignificant when compared to public finances which the people of Thailand own

Ohh those promises, I bet they were verbal.

Well this is just one other tiny example of the corruption of Thailand.

  The Thai elite of course are well fed, so I doubt that any of them

no matter their status have any concern. Shame on the corrupt people involved 

  and I hope that karma affects them all severely.

Geezer
