The main grouping of health and social service workers has warned that it is prepared to give notice of strike action if proposed changes in wages and conditions are pushed through. The union said that it was resolutely opposed to plans for an across the board pay cut of 10 percent and changes in the way wages are calculated and was ready to start strike preparations if there was no agreement. It said on Tuesday that the changes would only hasten the exodus of qualified staff to work abroad. Health Minister Leoš Heger said the wages cut had to be respected if the ministry was to save around 10 billion crowns this year.
