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 !

I love the blog that you have. I was wondering if you would link my blog to yours and in return I would do the same for your blog. If you want to, my site name is American Legends and the URL is:

If you want to do this just go to my blog and in one of the comments just write your blog name and the URL and I will add it to my site.

HI Osaid...what a mess huh? The government's hands are tied, the public sector employees have lost patience, the only positive effect strikes may have is putting pressure on the government to find alternative sources to pay saleries, since aid has been frozen and Israel continues to hold foreign duties paid on imports to Palestine. Well, my heart goes out to both.... Good post.

I just came across your blog and have enjoyed reading it. Did you come across the recent dismissal of Norman Finkelstein? A lot of disturbing trends have been emerging lately, in this case of dismissing dissident intellectuals from teaching positions.
