Health trade unions to resume strike as talks fail

12 Feb 2024

The health sector trade unions have decided to resume their trade union action as discussions held with the Ministry of Finance regarding their demands were unsuccessful.

Accordingly, 72 health sector trade unions, excluding doctors’ unions, will launch a strike from 06:30 a.m. tomorrow (13 ).

The decision was taken following a meeting held between representatives of the Finance Ministry and the trade unions this morning regarding their demand for the DAT allowance for all healthcare personnel.

The trade unions representing a wide range of health sector professionals, including radiology and laboratory technicians, pharmacists and drug compounders, midwives, dental surgeons, public health inspectors, and entomology officers have engaged in strikes on multiple occasions demanding an allowance hike for them.
