Health unions join forces to call for 15% pay increase

Czech Republic Czech Republic

The OSZSP health workers' union and LOK doctors' union held a joint press conference on 19 August to call for a 15% pay increase for all health workers in 2021. Both unions say that they are pleased with the additional payments for staff dealing with COVID-19 but that the government had to recognise the increase demands on the health service and the need to attract new staff in order to address excessive overtime and overwork. The unions say they are ready to negotiate but made clear that the health minister's proposal for a 5% pay rise was unacceptable.
