Union petition calls for decent work in health sector

Germany Germany
To coincide with the opening of the German labour market to citizens of the eight central and Eastern European countries that joined the European Union in 2004, services union ver.di has launched a petition calling for decent work in the health sector across Europe. Ver.di argues that it is more important than ever that health workers have decent pay and conditions and that they get equal pay for work of equal value at the workplace.
