Government offers 68% wage hike to health workers, 39% to doctors
Santo Domingo.- The Government on Friday proposed a salary increase as high as 68% for nurses, assistants, technicians and other medical personnel and 39% for physicians.
Also proposed in the talks among the authorities and the health sector were the unified wages, including fixed incentives for all workers and comply with the provision to establish one single workday.
The government representatives say the measure will benefit all health workers, because they’d no longer have work up to 16 hours, but eight instead, without reducing income and just in one workplace.
On pensions, the government agreed to a special concession to the unions to pension or retire, by decree, more than 6,000 employees in the sector, who will get the same amount as their final salary and incentives, including all employee pending pension, employees with health ailments and every employee over 65 and with 20 years of service.
