SYRIZA Slams Greek Gov’t for Not Paying Doctors’ Overtime

ATHENS – Main opposition SYRIZA on Monday accused the government of deceiving doctors and nurses, as it is refusing to pay them for overtime they have worked.

Following a newspaper report, SYRIZA said that the government has cited a cap imposed on overtime during normal conditions to avoid paying doctors and nurses for exhausting shifts. "In the midst of a pandemic, Mitsotakis is handing out tens of millions of euros to friends and relatives, but he doesn't give a penny for those who are on the frontlines of the battle."

"The government's mockery of doctors and nurses is without precedent," the main opposition said in a statement, calling on the government to "finally stop doing political favours and reinforce the national health system and its people."
