Marburger Bund – Federal Association

Berlin (ots)

The Marburger Bund has called on doctors at 23 state-owned university hospitals to go on an all-day warning strike tomorrow, January 30th. In the three rounds of negotiations so far, the Collective Bargaining Association of German States (TdL) has refused to agree to the doctors’ demands for fundamental improvements to their collective bargaining and working situation. Several thousand doctors from all over Germany are expected to attend the central warning strike rally on Opernplatz in Hanover (from 1 p.m.). At some locations in the southwest, additional decentralized activities are taking place.

“The states do not want to face the fact that university hospitals are falling further and further behind – in terms of medical salaries as well as working conditions. In the past, university hospitals could rely on attracting enough young talent to provide highly specialized care for seriously ill patients. This is becoming increasingly difficult because those responsible for the university hospitals refuse to offer better conditions. The triple burden of health care, research and teaching that doctors often have to bear is not given the appreciation it deserves. Instead, more and more regular clinical work is being carried out during off-peak hours Days and weekends because extra work at unfavorable times is cheaper for the clinics. We will not stand idly by and watch this development: It’s about fair conditions for top-class medicine,” emphasized Dr. Andreas Botzlar, 2nd Chairman of the Marburg Federal Association.

The Marburger Bund is therefore demanding higher surcharges for regular work at night, on weekends and on public holidays in this collective bargaining round. Even against the background of the continued noticeable price increases, he is demanding a linear 12.5 percent increase in salary based on one year. He wants to limit the increase in shift and alternating shift work.

Tomorrow, Tuesday, the warning strike will lead to restrictions in the university hospitals on strike, for example in non-urgent, postponeable operations. In order to guarantee emergency treatment for patients, the Marburger Bund offers the respective clinics the conclusion of emergency service agreements. The clinic management is obliged to ensure emergency staffing.

The collective agreement in question (TV doctors) covers more than 20,000 doctors in 23 university hospitals nationwide. The TV Doctors Act does not apply to a number of university hospitals because different collective agreements apply to doctors there. These include Berlin, Hamburg and Hesse. Company collective agreements apply to the university hospitals in Dresden and Mainz; they are negotiated by the relevant regional associations of the Marburg Federation.
