In a letter directed to the Health Services Board apex Council, the Zimbabwe Nurses Association (ZNA) said the 14 day altimutim they had given the authorities to resolve their griviances had lasped, hence the strike.
“It was noted in the aforementioned meeting that whilst there had been some attempts to address minor grivances, the most important grievances relating to remuneration of Health workers vis-a-vis the current economic climate have not been addressed.
“In light of the above, the meeting resolved to partially withdraw services for one week concurrently reiterate the need for the HSB to resolve all grievances,” said the letter.
They have since resolved that all health workers will attend work for only two days between 17 to 23 June 2019.
” Should the remaining grievances remain unresolved by close of day, June 23, all health workers will completely withdraw their labour from June, 24.”
