Catalan Doctors Call 2 Day Strike

Source: El Pais - Wed 9th Nov 2011

After months of conflict and debate between the Catalan regional government and their healthcare workers due to planned cutbacks, the region's doctors have called a strike at hospitals and outpatient departments for November 15 and 16.

Earlier this week a spokesman for the Doctor's Union representing the majority of the region's 16'500 Doctors told El Pais "There are red lines in healthcare that you cannot cross". The strike will be called off if the regional administration promises there will be no further cuts in 2012. Union leaders said they will negotiate "night and day" to that end.

"We are the last people who want a strike but they are leaving us with little choice," said the union's president, Albert Tomąs, who added that further cutbacks would leave the system "on the point of going under."
