Doctors call strike off in Zimbabwe after One month


The Union of doctors in Zimbabwe have announced an end to the over a month-long strike, the union said Thursday, adding the government had pledged to address their grievances.

Hundreds of doctors in public hospitals embarked on the strike on December 1 demanding salaries in US dollars, an increase in on-call allowances and an improvement in drug supplies and equipment.

Their decision to return to work came days after teachers’ unions announced a strike and the main civil service union said it was consulting members after rejecting the government’s offer of a 10-percent pay rise.
