The SLOVAK Union of Health Care Workers (SLO) yesterday asked Health Minster Ivan Valentovič to consider leaving his post, arguing that since Valentovič took office after June 2006 elections, nothing has been done to improve the situation in the health care sector.
According to Sme daily, the SLO has the support of the Confederation of Trade Unions (KOZ) labour umbrella group.
Earlier this week the Slovak Union of Health Care and Social Workers also criticized the situation in the health care sector, where employees are demanding higher wages for doctors and nurses, more money for hospitals, and caps on overtime.
