via Newsflash : Junior doctors start strike October 27, 2014
Junior Doctors at one of Zimbabwe’s major health institutions, Parirenyatwa Group of Hospitals, on Monday started their strike and vowed to press on until their demands for better working conditions are addressed.
When NewsDay visited Parirenyatwa Group of Hospitals this morning, most of them were gathered outside the staff quarters.
They are demanding that their salaries be reviewed from the current $282 to a minimum of $1 200 per month excluding allowances. They are also demanding free accommodation at government-owned flats.
The medical practitioners also said the government must reinstate the facility where doctors can import vehicles duty-free.
