Strikes resume over workloads

Germany Germany

Workers at university hospitals in Düsseldorf and Essen, members of the ver.di services union, have resumed their campaign of strike action over workloads. As reported in last month's epsucob@NEWS the union had decided to suspend strike action to allow further negotiations to take place with the employers. However, after four rounds of negotiations the employers failed to come up with any effective proposals to provide extra staff in wards, operating theatres or intensive care and so ver.di decided to lift the suspension of strike action.
