Nurses did not end the struggle for wages

Nurses are increasingly demanding higher wages, but so far without success. While the doctors’ salaries have increased twice already and further increase will continue next year, nurses are rewarded as before. The current law, which guaranteed them a wage increasing, was suspended last year by the Constitutional Court. Nurses again plan to solve the wage issue directly with the Minister of Health Zuzana Zvolenská. Slovak Chamber of Nurses and Midwives wants to reach her this week. The Ministry of Health states that nurses’ salaries have been increased last year. In the words of her spokesman, the state hospitals fully respected the requirements of nurses.
