Doctors in hospitals have announced warning strikes for next Monday. The background to this is a wage conflict between hospital doctors and their representatives, the Marbuger Bund and the Association of Local Employers' Associations (VKA). The strike is scheduled to start at 5 a.m. on Monday morning and end at 5 p.m. With the twelve-hour warning strike, clinicians want to put pressure on a solution in negotiations with local employers.

In addition, young entrants to the hospital medical service should get a better salary sooner. In a first round of negotiations on January 18, 2010, no agreement was reached.

The negotiator for the municipal employers, Joachim Finklenburg, who has been in office since January 2008 and is the managing director of the Kreiskrankenhaus Gummersbach GmbH, rejects the proposals and describes the required increases as "disproportionate". He receives indirect support from the chairman of the AOK Rhineland / Hamburg, Wilfried Jacobs, who refers to the general tense economic situation.
