PNG Health Support Workers Association planned strike 2016

Proposed health strike deferred

The strike was planned to be effective as of 4.06pm on Friday, December 9, for the duration of three weeks. However, it was called off due to the arbitration tribunal in progress.

PNGHSWA general secretary Jack Suao confirms that they have started negotiations with the Department of Personnel Management and the National Department of Health.

The strike was planned against DPM for the prolonged delay on the log of claims, including their housing allowance, pay increase, leave entitlements and other industrial matters.
