They are working continuously from 2 years to 10 years. But till date none of them have been made permanent. 
The meeting insists that all the multi-purpose medical staff who have served should be made permanent immediately and paid time scale. 
A minimum wage of Rs.26,000/- per month should be fixed. For Multipurpose Medical Staff in Erode District Minimum Wages for the year 2023-2024 was fixed by the District Collector on 26-10-2023.

The meeting demands that all statutory benefits be provided to the workers.
