Latvia - Nurses at children's hospital in Riga refuse working overtime - May 31, 2017

The council of the Latvian Health and Social Care Workers' Trade Union (LVSADA) decided to call on healthcare workers to start a warning protest campaign in a way of refusing to work the so-called extended regular working hours or overtime in July 2017. As a result, around 100 nurses of the medical care personnel at the Children's Hospital in Riga will refuse working the so-called extended regular working hours or overtime for which they are not paid extra as part of a warning protest campaign. The same action was adopted by hospital staff before. The surgeons at the Children's Hospital stopped working the extended regular working hours already in February 2017.
