Germany - National action by elderly care workers - September 30, 2009

Services union ver.di has organised a national campaign of action by workers in elderly care calling for combining improved financing for the sector with higher pay. The union argues that workers are facing much heavier workloads and that they need improved pay and working conditions and financial support for training. Action around the country is making people aware of the pressures that care workers face. The action is part of a longer term campaign to raise issues of patient care and working conditions in the sector as well as the need to re-evaluate jobs in the sector.
