Medics’ protest. Niedzielski: negotiations in a tripartite team

  • – Unfortunately, the offer was rejected without any further justification. I cannot say what the motivations were behind it – said Adam Niedzielski at the press conference
  • – This is another situation when we encourage people to talk, invite you to the table, present substantive proposals, and this is contested without any arguments – added the minister
  • Medics’ protest continues. It concerns, inter alia, paramedics, which means that Polish cities are currently lacking many ambulance crews. On September 11, a white town 2.0 was created near the Chancellery of the Prime Minister

– By proposing solutions, we wanted to make such a gesture, to show that we are determined to guarantee an increase in remuneration for medics of enormous value. Unfortunately, the offer was rejected without any further justification. I cannot say what the motivations were behind it – said Adam Niedzielski at a press conference.

– This is another situation when we encourage people to talk, invite you to the table, present substantive proposals, and this is contested without any arguments. We have made a decision in the Ministry of Health to shift the burden of negotiations to a tripartite team integrating employers and trade unions. We will want to sign an agreement there. We are determined to solve the problem. We have a meeting of this team scheduled for Friday – added the minister.

Medics’ protest

Medics’ protest continues. It concerns, inter alia, paramedics, which means that Polish cities are currently lacking many ambulance crews. The National Protest and Strike Committee of Healthcare Workers has eight demands. They include, among others increases, real increase in the valuation of benefits, lump sums and the so-called ambulances, as well as the employment of additional administrative and support staff and the introduction of employment standards related to the number of patients.

The Committee also calls for, inter alia, providing medical professions with the status of a public official and creating a system of protecting employees against verbal and physical aggression of patients; the introduction of sick leave after 15 years of professional work, as well as the enactment of laws on laboratory medicine and the profession of a paramedic.

On September 11, after a manifestation of health care workers in Warsaw, a white town 2.0 was created near the Chancellery of the Prime Minister, referring to the white town of nurses from 2007.

According to the Ministry of Health, the total cost of implementing the demands of the protest committee would be enormous. The management of the Ministry of Health emphasizes that the implementation of the salary demands of the protesting medics is unsustainable in next year’s budget and declares that it wants to talk about salaries and the path of their growth.
