Hospitals join Trade Union in criticising health sector financing

The Slovak Association of Hospitals (ANS) has announced that it agrees with the Slovak Trade Union of Workers in Health Care and Social Services (SOZ) that the health care sector is underfunded, the SITA newswire wrote.

The Slovak Association of Hospitals (ANS) has announced that it agrees with the Slovak Trade Union of Workers in Health Care and Social Services (SOZ) that the health care sector is underfunded, the SITA newswire wrote.

The insufficient funding leads to an increasing gap in remuneration between employees of hospitals associated under ANS and employees of hospitals directly managed by the Health Ministry, the parties said.

On April 11, the SOZ said is concerned about not being able to bargain for pay rises for employees of hospitals that are members of the ANS.

But the ANS has not recommended that its members support the SOZ’s demands to increase wages by 10 percent, due to insufficient funding of hospitals by health insurance companies.

The amount of the pay rise should have been agreed from February 1.

SOZ chairman Anton Szalay points out that the differences in salaries in many hospitals are increasing further. SITA
