Health workers will demand co-payments for work with COVID through picket

Health workers will demand additional payments for work with COVID-19 patients through a picket. The Action Medical Trade Union plans to hold a series of actions in autumn in several regions of Russia.

As theKommersant, doctors, nurses, paramedics and ambulance drivers are going to demand from the authorities to fulfill the instructions of the head of state on payments to doctors working with coronavirus patients.

Due to the ban on holding mass events, instead of rallies, pickets of several dozen people will be held. The first action will take place in Sochi. According to the chairpersons of the Action trade union Andriy Konoval, doctors will also demand to pay for COVID to nurses and drivers.

In May, health workers began to complain that they had not received presidential payments in April: in some hospitals, the surcharge was calculated by the hour, in others, starting with the first patient with a confirmed diagnosis. In hospitals that were not officially redesigned as covid hospitals, doctors did not receive copayments at all.

Recently the government decided extend incentive payments medics for September. At the end of August, it was reported that incentive payments to doctors who work with patients with coronavirus, will provide additional funding... The Russian government will allocate almost 22 billion rubles for these purposes.

In early September, the government announced that new incentive payments will receive medical workers fighting coronavirus.
