STRIKING nurses are set to meet with acting Health ministry permanent secretary Gibson Mhlanga on Tuesday in efforts to resolve the ongoing impasse between the two conflicting parties, the Daily News reports.
Chikobvu further indicated that nurses were also demanding that the government should pay their coronavirus (Covid-19) allowance based on risk and exposure to the virus.
“We demand graded risk allowances not a flat allowance across health workers. We want an evidence-based payment policy framework.“The nurses are extensively exposed hence they can’t be paid equivalent with those not even exposed at work,” he said.
