Portugal - Health services nurses slow down - August 31, 2017

Health service’s specialist nurses who usually provide specialist services in such areas as maternity and obstetrics wards have been refusing to perform any more than average nursing duties as a form of protest, resulting in some maternity wards being closed down and several others grinding to a halt. The nurses started the action for an indefinite period, in protest over their salaries and lack of recognition for their work. They are being paid wages equal to common nursing services despite providing specialist care.
