End of the nurses strike


After 10 weeks of protests for higher salary, the nurses strike is over. The government decided to intervene (after many calls from the regional governments and patients) and a large majority in the Parliament forced the nurses to accept the proposed 5% salary increase. The intervention is not something usual, as according to the Danish model, salaries are negotiated between employers and employees. The nurses are very unhappy with intervention and announce consequences. The strike postponed more than 35,000 surgeries.
