(Reuters) – Pharmacy workers at some U.S. Walgreens shops, together with pharmacists, technicians and help workers, plan to strike between Oct. 9 and 11, CNN reported on Friday, citing an organizer.
The report added that some workers are planning to strike for less than sooner or later, whereas others count on their pharmacies to be closed for all three days.
In line with the report, the strike is in response to what pharmacy workers name burdensome prescription and vaccination expectations imposed on pharmacists.
Walgreens didn’t instantly reply to Reuters’ request for remark.
This follows a 72-hour strike by nurses, medical technicians and help workers at a whole lot of Kaiser hospitals and clinics this week, the biggest ever to hit the US healthcare sector.
A strike by 75,000 well being care employees in opposition to Kaiser Permanente got here to a detailed Friday as each side agreed to renew stalled contract talks, although union officers warned that extra strikes had been seemingly sooner or later.
