Algerian healthcare unions threatened new strike actions next month, El Watan reported on Thursday (September 29th). A work stoppage, with the exception of emergencies, is slated for October 9th. The strikes will then increase by one day each week. Healthcare professionals are complaining of unsatisfactory working conditions. Earlier this year, Algerian paramedics staged a 2-day walkout to demand that the government comply with its promise to implement a salary-related “special status” change.
