SINDICATO Médico de Málaga (SMM) has reported that 75 per cent of the staff of the Agencia Sanitaria Costa del Sol has supported the strike called for by the absence of collective bargaining in the workforce. The association organized the protest, to which the rest of the unions of the three health centers of Marbella, Mijas and Benalmádena have joined.
SMM denounces the ” lack of sensitivity with long-term temporary workers “, which represents “almost half of the staff” of public agency professionals based in these health centres.
The original agreement of the Agencia Sanitaria Costa del Sol was negotiated in 2006 and expired in 2009, although it has continued for another ten years despite multiple attempts to revisit negotiations.
The union asks that the areas generated by replacement rates such as leave and retirement also be covered in the collective agreement.
Sindicato Médico de Málaga will convene striking on December 2 if the Andalusian Administration does not consider the claims of the workers.
