Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (EFE).- The CESM Canarias Medical Union has suspended the doctors’ strike that began on May 19, considering that it has achieved the revision of the remuneration that it demanded and that it hopes will be included in the budgets next year to apply them in 2024.
In a statement, he thanked the doctors for their support for his mobilizations, with which he assures that they have managed to “force the administration to convene three extraordinary sectoral health committees, of an urgent nature, where they have agreed and started almost “immediately” the salary review.
In the note, the CESM points out that there are numerous measures of a labor nature pending agreement, mainly related to Primary Care, which “continues to have all the recently applied improvements in the air”, despite having achieved, thanks to the strike, the establishment of reinforcements in emergencies and incidents.
And it is for this reason, due to the “absolute inability to reach agreements of the current Ministry of Health and the resounding refusal to negotiate by the current Government in a context of elections in the coming days”, for which they have agreed to temporarily suspend the strike, so this Thursday the usual activity resumes, says the note.
The union considers it coherent not to move forward until a new government is formed after the elections next Sunday, which shows adequate executive capacity and is “responsible enough”, in its opinion, to reach the agreements that the doctors demand .
For this reason, they have decided to give a margin to the development of an electoral period with absolute normality “as befits a democratic society”, as well as to the formation of a new government with which they hope to meet, reserving the option of reactivating the strike in the moment that you consider that your rights are not being defended accordingly.
The Canary Islands Medical Union assures that it will ensure that the agreements on the table are fulfilled and those that are missing materialize, since, otherwise, they will mobilize again, it warns. EFE
