As he informed the workers, there was no prior notice from the Rondônia government regarding the expiration of the contracts. The class views the decision as unfair because it was made “overnight” and could harm changes in health units.
“How are you going to make up for this shortage of professionals overnight? You risk not having doctors to meet that demand. Nothing was notified in advance. They learned about this on Tuesday and the cut will be tomorrow,” said one health professional, who preferred not to be identified.
According to the state Department of Health (Sesau), the decision was made after a significant drop in the number of cases and admissions to intensive care units. And since “there is a downtrend, retaining these professionals could lead to salary losses.”
