By Breaking Belize News Staff: Moments ago, nurses at the Southern Regional Hospital staged a walk-out to express their frustrations with an ongoing issue regarding overtime.
The nurses told Breaking Belize News (BBN) that they have consistently had issues with being compensated for their overtime, either being paid considerably less than is due or not being paid at all.
One nurse said that she worked 90 hours of overtime and was only compensated for 10 hours.
The walk-out is believed to be the first of a series of actions geared toward getting the nurses their due compensation.
This is a developing story.
