Disciplinary Hearings For Striking Doctors Set To Commence

The government says disciplinary hearings for striking doctors who have ignored a Labour Court ruling directing them to return to work will commence on Friday.

This was revealed by Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services Minister Monica Mutsvangwa during a post-cabinet media briefing in Harare on Tuesday afternoon. She said:

… disciplinary hearings for the striking doctors who did not comply with the Labour Court judgment directing them to return to work within the prescribed period will commence on Friday, 1st November 2019. The doctors have confirmed receipt of disciplinary hearings papers.

Mutsvangwa said that salaries will only be paid to doctors who have been reporting for duty.

Doctors at public health institutions have been on strike since the 3rd of November this year demanding liveable wages benchmarked to the interbank rate and provision of equipment and consumables to the hospitals.
