Pharmacists to stage 2-day strike over reforms

The country?s pharmacists are to stage a two-day strike on Thursday and Friday in protest at state cuts to spending on pharmaceuticals as well as the liberalization of their sector.

Unionists, who announced the two-day walkout on Monday, called on the government to tackle ?massive shortages in medicines? and to pay off the debts of all the country?s social security funds.
