Riga: Medical Workers’ Strike & Protest November 7th, 2019

On November 7th, 2019 at 8:30 AM about 3 thousand medical workers from all over Latvia gathered near the Parliament Building (Saeima). Those doctors who did not attend the protest declared an intermittent strike instead. Health care workers’ demands: increase real wages, reduce workloads and dissolve the parliament for not fulfilling its promises it gave earlier after a series of coordinated collective actions undertaken by the health care professionals.

Activists from the Workers’ Front of Latvia interviewed health care professionals who attended the protest.
