The health workers will hold a general strike today, with the demands that the Draft Law on Wages go to the Parliament as soon as possible and that the same start to be implemented from next year.
The Steering Council of FSSHK last week requested an urgent meeting with Prime Minister Albin Kurti, Minister of Internal Affairs Xhelal Sveçla and Minister of Health Rifat Latifi, in order for the Draft Law on Wages to be drafted in cooperation with trade unions and other factors and go to Parliament as soon as possible.
FSSHK warns that strikes and other union actions will continue if the Government and other relevant instances do not reflect.
