Zim’s health workers abandon plans to strike

Zimbabwe

By Leroy Dzenga

Zimbabwe’s health professionals have decided against going on a full blown industrial action that could have crippled operations at Government health institutions.

Instead they have opted for a middle of the road approach, leaving room for negotiations which they say must be concluded within a week.

If the negotiations fail, the workers say they will down their tools.

Nurses and doctors in public hospitals said they will be working for only two days a week while giving negotiations a chance.

In a letter addressed to the Health Services Board, the health professionals urged Government to urgently look into their conditions of service.
