Croatia -Health care workers on strike -September 18, 2013

Health care workers went on strike on 17 September over budget cuts that have left them without overtime pay and pay for staff on call. According to the trade unions, 46,000 nurses and doctors joined the strike, which continued to guarantee emergency services. The nurses’ union reported widespread intimidation of striking nurses by hospital managements, who demanded lists of nurses participating and made threats of dismissals. The benefits were scrapped earlier this year due to the state’s budget deficit. This is the first time since 2005 that health care staff is on strike.
