Angola: Luanda Govt and Nurses Reach No Deal to End Strike

Luanda — The provincial government of Luanda and the Angolan Luanda-based Nurses Union (SINTENFL) on Monday did not reach to any agreement to stop the nurses' strike in the province.

In a press note sent to ANGOP, the government of Luanda province says it was not possible to reach an agreement with Luanda Nurses Trade Union, due to three points concerning namely, first the frequent changes that have been conducted by SINTEFL in its complaint book and presented in several meetings with government.

Second point, the intransigency of the Nurses trade union in not accepting the reasons introduced by the government regarding the principle of career promotion, which is being conditioned due to the existence of the current salary fund for the holding of inner public tender as decreed by law.

The third point is the non compliance with results produced by the working group, which prepared the revision of the special careers of health professionals, whose group was created by the Hhealth minister and includes two members of the trade union.

However, the government of Luanda reports to the people in general that it is doing its best to secure that the minimum assistance could be provided in all health institutions of the province.
