Doctors issue ultimatum to Government by September 13 – Syla: Situation in clinics is dramatic – Latest News
The Federation of Health Trade Unions in Kosovo (FSShK) has requested an urgent meeting with the three heads of state, the president, the speaker and the prime minister.
The President of FSSHK Blerim Syla in a statement for Ekonomia Online said that the Government has decided to allocate only 10% for health workers in times of pandemic.
Syla adds that this is not about increasing salaries, but this is another manipulation by the Government of Kosovo.
He has demanded the implementation of the anti-Cvoid law which provides for an additional 300 euros until the adoption of the salary law, giving an ultimatum to the Government by 13 September.
“This 10% has not been well explained to the public because these are salary supplements based on the anti-Covid law and there is no talk of salary increases. So this is not a salary increase, but it is the next manipulation of the Government. He demanded that the anti-Cvoid law be implemented, which provides for an additional 300 euros until the adoption of the salary law. “The salary law must be approved this year in order to start in 2022”.
“We have given the government a deadline until September 13. I have also sent a letter to the President and the Prime Minister. The head of state at the time when she was speaker of the Assembly has sponsored the law itself, which is now being violated by the Government. “And we want to know why and where the payroll law is and why it is being played with health workers.”
Dr. Syla stressed that the situation is quite serious in clinics, it can even be considered dramatic.
Among other things, he said that these two days will be gathered to discuss further actions.
“The situation is very serious, dramatic in the clinics. It is expected to worsen because we also have seasonal flu and we can not go on strike. “But we will act to meet tomorrow or the day after tomorrow with the trade unions and we will make a manifestation and let everyone see that in Kosovo the right of health workers is being violated”.
