Malta -Nurses on strike over Sunday allowance -March 09, 2014

Nurses serving dermatology outpatients of Boffa hospital have announced a strike over Sunday shifts. The nurses will report to their shift manager, but will refuse to offer any services to outpatients. Nurses’ union MUMN said the hospital’s strategic management section had made the decision to no longer serve outpatients on Sundays without consulting the trade union. The nurses say that ending Sunday services will affect the quality of the care. The loss of the Sunday shift also has consequences on nurses’ salaries due to the loss of the Sunday allowance.
