Okypy’s proposal for hospital labour agreements has sparked disagreement with labour unions, who demand collective labour agreements with transparent pay scales and knowledge of annual raises. Unions seek a revised engagement approach from Okypy’s directorate, while Okypy suggests fixed and variable salary increases leading up to 2025, followed by a new system post2026, contingent on performance and financial health. Both parties are committed to ongoing dialogue to find a mutually beneficial agreement for the state healthcare system.
Unions Pasydy and Peo are demanding fair wages for hourly government staff, advocating for pay adjustments to address wage stagnation and the cost of living increases. This includes reversing salary cuts, restoring Cost of Living Allowance performance, and achieving wage progression that reflects inflation and respects their contributions.
