Schwerin/Pasewalk. Health Minister Stefanie Drese (SPD) wants to mediate the escalating wage dispute at the Asklepios Clinic in Pasewalk (Western Pomerania-Greifswald district). She and Western Pomerania State Secretary Heiko Miraß have invited the clinic’s management, the works council and other employee representatives to a meeting at the Health Ministry in Schwerin, Drese told the state parliament. The meeting is scheduled to take place next Thursday.

The ver.di trade union has called a warning strike in Pasewalk yesterday and today. According to the union, construction work will be halted from Tuesday to Thursday next week. Higher wages and a collective agreement for the hospital’s non-medical staff are needed. Since the privatization of the former Pasewalk district hospital more than 20 years ago, there has been no collective agreement for nursing staff, according to ver.di.

Employees complained to the state

Drese made it clear that as minister she was not allowed and did not want to engage in direct collective bargaining. But given the many complaints from hospital workers that the state government has received, she wants to help find a solution. The dispute also has an impact on supply security. “To avoid further damage, it is high time we work together to find solutions for fair wages and better working conditions,” the minister said.

She stressed that she was aware of the tense situation in many hospitals in the country. The state government is committed to ensuring adequate funding for hospitals in need. Much has already been achieved in negotiations with the federal government. Hospital liquidity has improved. (dpa)
