Health ministry to deduct wages from strikers' paychecks

June 8, 2014 9:51 P.M. (Updated: June 8, 2014 9:51 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- The Ministry of Health will deduct a portion of the monthly wages of doctors who have been on strike for several weeks, an official said Sunday.

"Employees who do not fully comply with their work schedule lose a portion of their wages equal to the number of days they were absent," the health ministry's director-general said.

Doctors employed by the Ministry of Health have been on strike for weeks, protesting against the ministry's "disregard for doctors' legitimate rights."
