Valencia pharmacies begin indefinite strike over government non-payment
By:
ThinkSpain , Monday, November 5, 2012

Pharmacies in Valencia, Alicante and Castellón began an indefinite strike today in protest over the 450 million euro debt the regional government has with them.

From November 5th onwards, two in every three pharmacies will be closed each day, on rotation, until the debt is settled.

Pharmacists argue that the regional authorities have brought the strike upon themselves, by leaving pharmacies in a "dramatic situation which has forced them to close indefinitely".

The regional government of the Comunidad Valenciana owes pharmacies five and a half months worth of prescription payments.

Last week they settled half of their April debt and half of their May debt using funds from the Reginal Liquidity Fund (FLA).

"This move leaves us back where we were, since on Wednesday we'll be adding another month's worth to the ongoing debt", complained the pharmacists.
