Poland -Nurses, midwives reach compromise over pay -September 23, 2015

Trade unions negotiators have signed an agreement with the health minister that includes a pay increase for health care workers calculated over 4 years. Earlier on thousands of nurses and midwives had joined a demonstration in Warsaw to demand faster wage rises. The Health Ministry first offered to raise the wages by PLN 1,200 (285 euro) over a four-year period. The nurses and midwives, organised in the National Trade Union of Nurses and Midwives (OZZPiP), demanded a raise of PLN 1,500 (357 euro) over three years. The average wage of a Polish nurse is currently PLN 3,277 (780 euro) per month. The compromise that was settled gives the workers a pay increase of PLN 1,600 (380 euro) over a four-year period.
