The General Bond of Personnel employed by the Academic Hospital Paramaribo (ABPLAZ) is in a sitdown action from today. The members of the union took this decision yesterday during a general meeting of members (GMM). The staff wants burning matters to be discussed.
Negotiations on the benefits, which had to resume since early January 2021, and the escalations between employees of the Education Center department and the manager there, are among some of these points.
From 23 October 2020, the ABPLAZ board will try to find solutions to problems with which it has been struggling in the hospital through dialogue with the Minister of Health for some time, ABPLAZ said in a press release.
A designated team led by the Director of Health has twice been unprepared to the meeting with the board, which was not well received by the board. Documentation submitted by the board during the first meeting with the minister turned out not to have been read.
