Matovič does not plan to continue negotiating with doctors regarding salaries – Domáce – Správy

Minister of Finance Igor Matovič (OĽANO) no longer plans to negotiate with doctors about their salaries. According to him, they got a very good offer. He made the announcement on Friday.

“At this time, the offer we gave to doctors is very, very superior. It is dramatically more than we have offered to anyone in the state administration except for nurses, they should have more percentage wise,” said Matovič. At the last meeting, according to his words, he told the doctors that it was the last meeting.

In August, the Minister of Finance presented a proposal to increase the salaries of doctors in institutional health facilities. For doctors without certification, the minimum wage coefficient should be increased from 1.25 to 1.4 times the average wage. For certified doctors, the coefficient was to remain the same, namely 2.3 times the average salary. For both, salaries were to be based on years of service.

The head of the Medical Trade Union (LOZ), Peter Visolajský, after the last meeting at the Government Office of the Slovak Republic, stated that there is no other option than mass dismissals. He pointed out that the government has still not presented solutions to some of the demands of medical unions. According to him, the salary increase alone will not solve the problem.
