The different teachers’ associations also went on strike for the same reason in a prevailing climate of protests in various production and service sectors.

Faced with the Budget Accountability to be debated in Parliament, the Federation of Public Health Officials (FFSP) stressed that the staff has lost 6.0 of their pay.

The Federation also seeks to “recover the salary of the workers, that there are more human resources and a budget to improve working conditions and the quality of care provided to users.”

Its leader, Martin Pereira, raised the need for the hiring made as a result of the Covid Plan to continue because each month’s renewal reduces stability for the workers and tranquility for the patients and the care “will be very bad.”

Another point reflected in a statement was the 15 percent cut made by the government in health operating expenses, when 120,000 new users entered the State Services Administration (ASSE) from mutualists who stopped paying because of the country’s economic crisis.

In this sense, it was reported that the workers grouped in the FFSP belonging to ASSE and the Ministry of Public Health will stop their activities at the national level for 24 hours, with the unions keeping guard in everything related to urgencies, emergencies, cancer patients and care in hospital rooms.
