National strike nurses on 19 April in Morocco
The strike is aimed against the Ministry of health.
"There is a problem at the level of the former diploma of nursing Bac + 3. The Ministry of health does not recognize the equivalence, "explained Mohammed Hamid, Secretary General of the National Federation of health (with ties to the Moroccan UMT trade union), to HuffPostMaroc.
"As a Union, we could not sit back so we got together and decided to this national strike," he added.
Although in the first place the nurses are called upon to strike, other health care personnel, such as doctors or pharmacists, also with it. "We voted for them for an optional strike", said Mohammed Hamid.
