Health Workers Strike: A Potential Public Security Threat

According to RTTL News last night at 20.00 26 Sep 2012, the nurses and doctors of Dili National Hospital plan to strike beginning next Monday, 1 Oct 2012. The health services workers will strike for unpaid overtime and unpaid “career scheme” payments. The career scheme law, No. 13/2012 “Carreiras Dos Profissional da Saude,” passed in March 2012, guarantees health workers specialized payments as health care professionals in addition to regular civil servant payments. However, while this law has existed for almost 7 months, no money for such payments owed was included in the state budget 2012 or in the ongoing ratification of that budget.

The combination of the strike and lack of budget allocation creates an enormous problem for Minister of Heath, who needs to create a solution in a short amount of time. Furthermore, the lack of budget allocation for career scheme payments in the state budget for 2013 indicates that the government cares only about political gains with policy. It does not care with implementation. The previous government had promised a resolution to the issue of unpaid career scheme payments. But this did not happen. Now, the law exists, but no money exists to stop a strike at Dili National Hospital and, perhaps, other regional hospitals in Timor-Leste.

Why does/can the government play rhetorically with the national health system and create a potential public security threat?
A health services strike at Dili National Hospital, the largest hospital in Timor-Leste, will have obvious negative consequences for public health and security. The strike will victimize Timorese citizens in need of both emergency and non-emergency care.

Fundasaun Mahein (FM) recommends that the government, through the Minister of Health, respond immediately and seriously to the health workers’ warning. This money was promised to the health workers. Unsuccessful negotiations before next Monday could have devastating consequences for individual Timorese citizens.

Lastly, Fundasaun Mahein recommends that the National Parliament discuss this issue and allocate a budget as stipulated by the career scheme law.
