Health unions criticise lack of social dialogue and block on unions


Health unions came together with representatives of trade union confederations to criticise a proposed amendment to the Health Care and Insurance Act. The unions argue that the amendment is effectively revenge for recent trade union protests against government policy and that it will deny trade unions and workers representation on health institution management bodies. Trade unions and confederations across all sectors have been engaged in protests over the refusal of the government to engage in social dialogue. This is just the latest example of the government failing to consult and putting forward measures to limit the role of trade unions. Health unions say that are more than willing to engage with the government over measures needed to reform the health service.
