Switzerland - Hospital workers mobilise over pay and conditions - October 9, 2009

Over 300 health workers took to the streets of Fribourg in a campaign to secure an increase in shift premia for night work. The SSP public service union wants to see hospitals honour the minimum legal requirements of a 10% addition for night work and full compensation for on-call duties but also is claiming a 20% allowance for night work in line with practice in most other cantons (regions).
