Feeling ill in Estonia?
Heal thyself before January 17th.
Estonian healthcare workers say they will strike beginning January 17th, should their wage demands not be met. And if the strike lasts long, other trade unions claim they are ready to support them.
Unions to have joined the pact include: Estonian Nurses Union, Estonian Healthcare Workers Trade Unions’ Confederation, Estonian Railway Workers’ Trade Union, Estonian Route Pilots Trade Union, Estonian Seamen Independent Trade Union, Narva Energia Trade Union, and the Estonian Transport and Road Workers Trade Union. The strike pact has over 15,000 members, which, if they strike, may seem like most of Estonia.
