Hungary -Social workers threaten to strike -August 09, 2015

The head of the independent health care trade union announced that tens of thousands of underpaid, overworked social workers are preparing to go on strike. According to the union the HUF 209 (0.67 euro) hourly wage supplement offered to social workers through November 2015 does not come close to meeting their demands.  Some 30,000 social workers with less than 11 years’ work experience are excluded from receiving supplemental wages.
