Czech Republic - Health union demands talks with government - February 14, 2011

The TUHSSC health union has called on the government to re-open social dialogue in order to tackle the crisis facing the health service. Hospitals are facing problems in funding and plan to close thousands of beds while doctors have threatened mass resignations if nothing is done to improve the low levels of pay in the sector. The unions have asked for solving the complex remuneration system for workers in the healthcare with the target to raise their pay. They also campaign for a united pay-scale for all workers in public and private health care.
