Speaking to Daily News, Zimbabwe Nurses Association (Zina) secretary-general Enoch Dongo said that they have given the Health Services Board (HSB) notice of a possible strike which could begin as early as September 8.
We told the board that senior nursing staff cannot earn less than juniors. Some junior nurses after taking the night shift earn $637 while their seniors earn $600. What they have to consider is that if the nurse manager earns that little, what about the sister-in-charge who is below? This prompted us to resolve that in the next 14 days, the board should iron out these discrepancies or risk a nationwide strike. However, as the managers who also include teaching staff go on strike, it is likely that the juniors will also join because they will have no one to lecture them.
