Doctors told to go back to work
The Zimbabwe Hospital Doctors Association has implored its members who had joined the nationwide industrial action that started this Sunday the 2nd of December, to go back to work while their grievances are being looked into.
However, the doctors were told that government cannot meet their demand to be paid in foreign currency.
In a statement dated November the 30th and signed by the Doctors National Committee, the junior doctors indicated their intention to engage in an industrial action as a result of what they termed “severe incapacitation and inability to withstand the current disabling working environment.
An urgent meeting was thus convened on Monday which was attended by some representatives from the Zimbabwe Hospital Doctors Association, the Minister of Health Dr Obediah Moyo and representatives from the Health Services Board HSB. ZHDA secretary general Dr Patrick Mugoni argued their salaries are almost worthless and they are wasting productive time queuing for fuel.
