Orderlies: the full-time to $ 49,000 a year will be offered to all, says Legault

Préposés aux bénéficiaires: le temps plein à 49 000 $ par année sera offert à tous, martèle Legault

No matter what people say the directors of the health network, as the current beneficiary attendants to part-time than 10 000 currently in training will be able to have full-time positions this fall, ” said François Legault.

Crossing Beaupré Friday to meet with the medical authorities of the region, the premier of Quebec called for major changes in how things are done.

“You know, this is a problem in the health care network, is that there are 50% of employees who work part-time. It is a real problem that there’s pretty much just Quebec. There is not an organization in the private sector who would be able to function with half of its part-time employees”, he said.

All orderlies currently in the network will offer full-time positions to $ 49,000 per year, in addition to the 10 000 other currently training accelerated until mid-September, reiterated François Legault.

Those who refuse these jobs will, however, make a cross on the hourly wage of $ 26 promised by the government, he added.

According to him, unions of the health sector are trying to “defend” part-time positions they would like to see as well-paid as those in full-time promised by the government.

“So, there’s actually a choice to make for those employees there. It is not the case of the unions, but at any given time, I think it is important, if one has a lesson that we have drawn from the crisis is that we need people full-time who work in a single ltc facility […]”, he continued.

Thursday, his minister of Seniors, Marguerite Blais, has had to remind the leaders of each of the integrated Centre of health and social services (CISSS) and its counterparts at the university (CIUSSS) the promise made by the government relating to pay and hours of work of the future beneficiary attendants currently in training. Some of them were told that their schedule was not full time and their salary is lower than expected.

Since the beginning of the accelerated training given by the government to recruit 10,000 attendants in CHSLDS, the trade unions have deplored the fact that it already lacks full-time positions for several employees of the network and forced to work part-time.

“There are a lot of people that would like to be full-time. We will guarantee 10 000 full-time positions for new and new. You should also ensure that those who are already in employment and who have passed through the crisis and gave it all,” said the president of the Fédération de la santé et des services sociaux (FSSS-CSN), Jeff Begley, to LCN.
