German doctors strike6th April 2006
The Marburger Bund, the German hospital doctors' association announced that an overwhelming majority of their members voted in favour of a strike. More than 22,000 doctors in most of Germany's 36 university and state hospitals have decided to strike indefinitely from 16 March.
Emergency care and all treatments for potentially life threatening diseases will continue, but most non-emergency treatments and operations in the hospitals have been postponed.
The doctors want a 30% pay rise and better working conditions, with regular hours and paid overtime.
