The Union of Free Workers of the Clinical Center of Montenegro (KCCG) welcomed the decision of the Government of Montenegro to financially assist health workers who work directly with kovid patients in the amount of 250 euros.

The unions said that this was the first time since the beginning of the epidemic that the Government and the relevant ministry had rewarded the hard work and commitment of health workers in this amount, which amounts to more than half of their salaries.

They point out that they still do not give up on their goal to first reach a special collective agreement for the Clinical Center through negotiations with the Ministry of Health, and only then to start negotiating the increase estimates.

“We are witnessing the media appearance of a trade union close to the DPS from KCCG, which in vain gave up the once commonly proclaimed goal of drafting a special collective agreement. As true representatives of the employees of the Clinical Center, we do not give up and believe that KCCG, as the only tertiary health institution in the country, requires special and specific treatment because in addition to the number of employees – it bears the greatest burden of providing all health services in the health system. the workload of its employees is the greatest “, it is stated in the announcement of the Trade Union.

They add that, accordingly, the Trade Union of Free Workers will soon start presenting and realizing its goals through an inclusive dialogue with the management of KCCG and the Ministry of Health.

“Where, to the mutual satisfaction, an optimal solution will be found and our rights will be satisfied, as well as the interest and protection of the state’s public finances, which are endangered and almost destroyed by the catastrophic policy of the former government,” the union concludes.
