Health Workers Lift Stoppage in El Salvador

San Salvador, October 8 (RHC)-- Health unions in El Salvador announced the end of a stoppage they began on September 26th, demanding salary increases in the 2014 national budget.

Trade union leader Silvia Navarrete told reporters that the decision is a good-will gesture while the legislative assembly debates the country’s budget plan for next year.

Deputies from different political parties announced their willingness to adjust the budget draft legislation to attend to the demand issued by the unions which, if approved, will stand for 23,9 million dollars.

Only 30 public hospitals involved in the stoppage saw the paralization of medical activities on Monday, in which eight out of the sector’s 24 unions took place.

Several hundred doctors and other hospital employees marched on Monday to the legislative assembly to put muscles on that body in order to get their demand through.
