Oran told Jordan News that the committee members’ main demand was getting an additional allowance of 135 percent, “on equal footing with other similar sectors.”

Oran said the health professionals were promised an additional allowance, “which encouraged them to suspend a work-stoppage decision, fully understanding the economic situation the country faces,” however, he added that an escalation would ensue if their demands were not met.  

The committee’s other demands include the approval of the auxiliary health occupation law by the Prime Ministry, which Oran said “must be issued soon, especially that it would still need to pass through several steps and a long time before being enacted.”

Jordan News learned, through a source at the Prime Ministry, that the draft bill has already been submitted to the Legislation and Opinion Bureau.

The National Committee for Auxiliary Health Occupation had announced its decision to stop work on Sunday after the competent authorities, including the Ministry of Health and the Civil Service Bureau, failed to fulfill its demands.
