IKA Doctors End Strike on Monday



Doctors at IKA-ETAM, Greece’s largest social security fund representing the vast majority of wage earners and pensioners, announced that they will suspend their strike and go back to work on Monday.
Their union POESYP IKA decided to suspend strike actions during a meeting on Friday.  The union asked for continued dialogue on reforms to the health sector.
IKA doctors intend to work together with other medical organisations and associations in order to file lawsuits.  They are asking the courts to effectively annul the omnibus bill on primary health care passed by the government earlier this week, in addition to other forms of action to be decided in the following days.
