CGT Health and Social Action urged staff at hospitals and healthcare facilities to mobilize this Thursday to request additional resources.
In Vienna, around thirty activists changed lanes in front of Lucien-Hussel Hospital, between 11.30 and 15. “We have been pulling the strings for years,” apologizes Samy Gacem, Secretary General of the CGT at Vienna Hospital. We need more staff (nursing assistants, nurses, doctors), decent working conditions so that we can treat our patients properly, more beds … We apologize for the lack of training, the flight of doctors who will no longer work in such conditions. “
Specifically, the union therefore calls for “creation of hospital beds”, but also “massive employment in all sectors within health, social and medical-social”.
