Spain: Doctors begin indefinite strike amid coronavirus pandemic

Dozens of doctors gathered on Tuesday in front of the Congress of Deputies in Madrid during the first day of the indefinite strike that will take place every last working Tuesday of each month. This strike, which takes place in hospitals and medical centres throughout Spain, is the first that the sector has carried out in 25 years, and has been called by the Executive Committee of the State Confederation of Medical Unions (CESM). Gabriel del Pozo, secretary general of CESM, said that the doctors “are not going to allow this, or any other government, to dismantle the Spanish public health system” and assured that they “did not want to start this national strike and this government was capable of stopping it.” The budget cuts in recent years and the abuse of the temporary status of health personnel are the main reasons for medical professionals to support this strike, although the trigger for the mobilisations has been the recent approval of Royal Decree Law 29/2020 by the Government, which doctors consider “inadmissible.”
