Unions unhappy about employers' offer for private health sector


After 13 hours, negotiations over the agreement covering 80,000 workers in the private health and social services sector ended with no progress over the annual pay increase.

Negotiations will resume on 12 January and the unions are planning protest actions on 26 January if there is no improved offer.
