Members of the Sanitas Union will enter a warning strike on Monday morning, meaning that between 9 am and 11 am only a third of employees will be active, according to the law.
Iulian Pope, prime vice-president of Sanitas, said that the waiting times will increase for non-emergencies, but emergencies will be covered as normal.
Pope also said that the union hopes their demands are met by the government in a discussion that is due to take place on Tuesday. Otherwise, it will go on general strike for an indefinite period.
The Sanitas Federation wants a change in the salary law in order to eliminate the 30 percent cap on benefits or hazard payments, to increase salaries of all healthcare and social assistance personnel and negotiate and sign their collective work contracts.
On May 2, the union met with Health minister Sorina Pintea, but they said that the strikes will go forward unless the government commits to changing the law.
