NURSES GO ON STRIKE
Written by Panashe Madzinga on April 17, 2018
Nurses at public hospitals across the country have gone on strike following government’s failure to pay and improve their working conditions.
Patients at Zvishavane District Hospital who spoke to Y A FM news expressed concerns with nurses’ strike which started yesterday.
Some nurses who spoke to YA FM news on condition of anonymity and fear of victimization said they will not report for duty until their on-call allowances and other working conditions are improved.
In a statement on Sunday, the Zimbabwe Nurses Association said they have engaged with government who promised to attend to all their grievances by Thursday this week.
