Slovakia -Doctors keep strike alert in place -December 17, 2011

On Monday 12 December, the government passed the measures prepared by the parliamentary health committee concerning doctors’ salaries and the amendments the Labour Code. LOZ, the doctors’ trade union, rejected the changes prepared by the government as incomplete and again declared a strike alert. On 15 December, LOZ vice-chair Peter Visolajský said that it was premature to talk about calling off the strike alert, as the legislation passed in parliament had not yet come into effect. LOZ representatives on Thursday again called on President Ivan Gašparovič and Prime Minister Iveta Radičová to dismiss Health Minister Ivan Uhliarik. The reason, according to Visolajský, were some of Uhliarik's recent statements, which he called “nonsensical” (See also this Collective Bargaining Newsletter Year 4 October and November 2011).
