Health Sector Strike : is it over ?
The health unions have exploited the political situation to impose their new conditions : an extra 25-35% payments ( Calculated on the basic salary ) given to nurses, doctors, and technicians.
The Palestinian Nurses Union was the strongest part in these negotiations , sine the Physicians Union gave up the talks for unclear reasons.
Regardless of the political complications and the whole uncertainty about everything, this is a good step !
The government has promised to pay the salaries of the previos 6 months withing the following months, and has promised to pay the salaries of the coming months without any delay. Maybe they can fulfill their promises : this is possible if the money that Qatar promised to give to the Palestinians can practically reach the West Bank and Gaza.
The next two weeks will tell us more : will they fulfill what they promised, or the unions will go back to strike !
