Nurses at Gweru Provincial General Hospital on Monday staged a sit-in at the hospital demanding to be addressed by management.
The nurses, who last week resolved to work for two days a week, were protesting the absence of duty rosters for those who had reported for work.
Speaking to NewsDay on Monday, Zimbabwe Professional Nurses Union president, Robert Chiduku confirmed the development. He said:
- - - Buy NetOne, Telecel Airtime on WhatsApp using EcoCash.
Send the word Airtime to +263 714 815 229
No extra charges. - - -
What I can say is that the nurses have resolved that they want to be addressed by the hospital’s management before they assume any duties.
As we speak, there are no duty rosters in the wards and no communication has been made formally over that issue. So what I can say is there is confusion here.
Since we resolved to work for only two days a week, there is a lot that is being said in the informal circles purportedly coming from management. As a result, the nurses have said let the management come and address us and set the record straight.
The publication was informed by its sources that the management at the hospital intended to victimise all the nurses who were not reporting for duty and also planned to fire those suspected to have been the ringleaders in the job action.
