MPs on 1 July unanimously approved a PSD proposal that attributes a performance bonus equivalent to 50 percent of the remuneration to workers in the National Health Service (SNS) and increased vacation time.

“During the year 2020, the Government attributes to all SNS professionals who, during the state of emergency and its renewals, exercised functions in a subordinate work regime in the SNS and have practiced, in that period, in a continuous and relevant way, acts directly related to the person of suspects and patients infected by covid-19, a performance bonus, paid only once, corresponding to the amount equivalent to 50 percent of the basic monthly remuneration of the worker to whom it is attributed”, determines the proposal.

In addition, an increase in vacation days was approved for these professionals.

Both proposals were approved without votes against or abstentions.


About time! Where would we be without these dedicated professionals, along with supermarket workers, trash collectors etc. True performers during this crisis.
