Guyana: GPSU restates call for all health workers to be classified as frontline staff, paid risk allowance

As part of the ongoing negotiations between Government and the Guyana Public Service Union (GPSU) regarding disaffected health workers, the union is restating that all health workers be classified as ‘Frontline Workers’ and be paid a risk allowance.

A release from the GPSU today, informed that an investigative team comprising representatives of the government and the union has so far visited health care facilities within regions 3, 5, 6, 10, and the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation. The team met with all categories of frontline health care workers and management representatives at each facility.

These joint visits are part of a two-week period for negotiations on the risk allowance and associated matters after nurses at the GPHC had threatened last week to go on strike.
