By Aaron Humes : Add medical professionals to the growing list of those unhappy with the John Briceno administration. 

A majority of members of the Belize Medical and Dental Association (BMDA), surveyed, are against cuts to salaries (58.2 percent) and increment freezes (55.7 percent), the Association says in a statement. As believed by nine in every ten professionals, both public and private, the medical community’s service as frontline workers makes them a valuable contributor to the national conversation. 

The BMDA says its members are “underpaid, undermined and overworked with limited resources,” made worse by the pandemic. They promise to continue “going the extra mile” for patients and sacrificing family and personal time, but ask Government to reconsider the reduction in the wage bill, reform the tax system; overtime pay to come in on time and in full; implement reforms under the United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC), and avoid irresponsible spending. It also asks the unions to negotiate on behalf of and for the benefit of all workers, including those considered essential.
