The strike action by health workers on 2-3 May helped the SINTAP public service union conclude an agreement that establishes equal treatment for 20000 health workers in terms of working time and other employment conditions. Workers on individual contracts employed in public enterprise hospitals did not have the same rights as workers directly employed by the national health service. The new agreement, signed on 4 May, now ensure that they have the same rights to the 35-hour week, holidays, supplements for overtime and night work and career development.
