Nurses’ Strike Enters Fifth Week

With no compromise in sight the nurses’ strike is entering its fifth week.

On Monday afternoon, mediation efforts were supposed to continue. According to the employers, the Swedish Association of Local Authorities and Regions, at least some 4,000 patient operations have already been cancelled.

But the Swedish Association of Health Professionals rejects any responsibility for the cancellations and calls on the employers to stop what they call underpay and raise salaries.
