As Maria looms, Dominican doctors announce a 24-hour strike

Santo Domingo.- Dominican Republic’s doctors’ guild (CMD) on  Monday announced a 24-hour work stoppage on Wednesday in all Public Health hospitals, to protest alleged violation of the agreement reached last year with the Government.

CMD president Waldo Ariel Suero said over 5,000 doctors, most of whom work in Dominican Social Security Institute hospitals, were excluded from the second 15% wage increase which took effect last August.

Suero said that despite talks with authorities, the agreement has been broken, and they’ll intensify their struggle.
