Health Minister Christian Dubey said they did not like the statements made following the departure of major unions of health workers who had allegedly refused to cooperate.
In a press release on Tuesday, the unions condemned the minister’s departure over the issue of bonuses for union representatives.
“Minister Dubey suggests that we only have union leave, but this issue has not been discussed during recent meetings with the MSSS”, FIQ, FSSS-CSN. , FSQ-CSQ, SQEES-FTQ and CUPE jointly verified.
“For trade unions, it is hoped that the Minister will find fault with the difficulties encountered in recruiting staff,” they write.
In an interview with LCN, interim president of FIQ Nathalie Levesque wanted to set the record right.
“I found it quick to blame trade unions for saying today that it is companies – those that represent care professionals and have worked together to provide solutions – that are us. On the contrary, ”she said.
Ms. Lewesk, however, denies the fact that union representatives can not be influenced in the same way as part-time employees, although some of them return to the field.
The interim president of FIQ blamed the health ministry for “closing the door”.
“We have suggested additional solutions. We have named 15 others. We have it for medium term and long term. The door, it is closed, but not on our side. It is closed towards the ministry,” Nathalie Levesk stressed.
