Union calls for recognition of hospital workers’ sacrifice in pandemic

Austria

The vida services union has opened negotiations with the group of religious hospitals that employ around 16500 workers across the country and is calling for improvements to pay that recognise the efforts made by staff over the past two years. It also wants to see measures to reduce high workloads and reduce the risk of overwork leading to sickness absence. The union is calling for action on rosters to guarantee more stable work patterns and better work-life balance and more investment in personnel and infrastructure.
