Doctors Strike Agreement With Government
The doctors trade union LOZ, which has been battling fiercely for a better pay offer from the government, has bowed to the pressure and struck an agreement, accepting the government’s proposal subject to it being put into legislation.
Head of LOZ, Marian Kollar, said it was a tough decision to make, but that they had done it also because they cared about the people of the country. Hosopdarske Noviny cites him as saying “It is now up to the government to keep its promise and for the National Council to approve it”.
Doctors should all return to work as soon as the necessary legislation is pushed through parliament,
