Nurses from across the country protested in front of the Diet today. They demanded, among other things, equalization of salaries and recognition of earned qualifications. The protesters marched to the Submission Office of the Polish Parliament, where they submitted their own draft amendment to the law on their profession.
- Last year's amendment to the law led to a degrading situation for nurses, and the growing salary stacks led to discrimination against them. This was a huge disappointment, especially since we were in front of the Sejm last June, and in talks with the Minister of Health we repeatedly spoke about the irregularities in the construction of this law," Krystyna Ptok, chairwoman of the All-Poland Trade Union of Nurses and Midwives, said in an interview with Medexpress.
