Hospital workers’ strike in Chile delays surgeries

Orlando Sentinel, April 30, 2008
Workers at Chilean public hospitals are striking to demand better working conditions and filling of vacancies. Doctors have not joined the walkout, but Union leader Carlos Castro says about 80 percent of the 65,000 workers joined the strike. Emergency services were not affected, but many nonurgent surgeries had to be rescheduled as a result of the strike.
