“Govt Reviewed Our Allowances, We Rejected The Offer” – Junior Doctors

Following the last bipartite meeting, Treasury has decided to review our on call allowances and other health specific allowance with a 60% increment.

ZHDA did not accept the offer and we are still incapacitated. We want our allowances to be reviewed at the current interbank exchange.

Doctors have for more than a month now been on industrial action asking for better salaries and improved working conditions.

The development comes as senior doctors have also joined the strike saying that they have been incapacitated as the soaring inflation has continued to erode their salaries.
