Pay and tax measures to benefit health workers

Russia Russia

The HWURF health workers' union reports that special COVID-19 tax measures have been extended to doctors with personal income tax incentive payments for those facing special working conditions and additional workloads when working with patients with the virus and people at risk of infection. Meanwhile the FNPR trade union confederation has called for state-wide base salaries to be set across healthcare and other parts of the public service to end the wide variation in salaries between regions. The measure was due to be discussed at the Tripartite Commission for the Regulation of Social and Labour Relations on 24 April. The FNPR had earlier made a call for a 50% increase in pay for health workers dealing with COVID-19 patients.
