Doctors’ unions again consider strike

Doctors’ unions have not lost the will to go on strike, even now that their leader Marian Kollár, who led them during last year’s negotiations, has resigned from his post. The Sme daily wrote in its Wednesday, June 6, issue that the new unions’ leader Peter Visolajský is not ruling out strikes.

Doctors’ unions have not lost the will to go on strike, even now that their leader Marian Kollár, who led them during last year’s negotiations, has resigned from his post. The Sme daily wrote in its Wednesday, June 6, issue that the new unions’ leader Peter Visolajský is not ruling out strikes.

Speaking for the unions, he said he was worried about the salary increases won by doctors being connected to those of nurses and other medical stuff. He feared this could threaten doctors’ salaries. Asked whether doctors – if such a situation arose – would go on strike, he answered that doctors would react appropriately. Visolajský added that their potential strike was not a matter of political leadership or inclination, and would come regardless of who is in power.

Health Minister Zuzana Zvolenská said, through her spokesperson Zuzana Čižmáriková, that she did not understand the criticism and calls for a strike.
