For a year that EPSM (1) of Caen is fighting against a financial recovery plan, it became a symbol of resistance to the restrictive policies imposed by different es health ministers, to pay shortage of hospital resources, and now the refusal of the criminalization of trade union action. ---- They think only as we think only care ... ---- It is only through the efforts of daily hospital, hospitals continue to operate. Everywhere the same degradation of working conditions (lower RTT slip tasks, staff reduction, working 12h ...), de-skilling of staff, stored in rank to fiscal adjustment variable. Quality of care is relegated to insignificant against the totalitarian juggernaut protocols and quality process. No question of humanity, but profitability! But for the ARS (2) and hospital managers, who dream more concerned with the politics of that figure care business leaders: "There still meat on the bone." What remains to scratch it is the "accrued benefits," pointed to by the Government, the Court of Auditors and the Hospital Federation of France, as an illegitimate relic of a bygone era.

A movement that has spread to win

Faced with this frontal attack, hospitals are struggling many (Sarlat, Angers, Beauvais, Digne, Sete, St. Ave, St Jean d'Angely, Marseille, Plaisir-Grignon, Korian White House in Paris, Guillaume Regnier in Rennes Paul Guiraud in Villejuif, EPSM in Caen, CHUM Martinique ...) and every day new mobilizations are emerging everywhere in France. Despite the revolt rumbles, the claims of hospital stay inconspicuous. It is with this realization that the employees and trade unions CGT and SUD EPSM Caen were to initiate a first General Assembly of hospitals struggling, April 4 at Caen. This first AG, which brought together representatives from over forty hospitals has led to the drafting of a call (see CA No. 240 in May 2014) and stressed the need for coordinated action. The movement built: Second AG on May 22 in Nanterre, 57 institutions present, syndicated to the CGT, SUD, the CNI (3) militants, UFAS (4) ... or non-union, decided to move to the offensive. This was achieved by the "call of Nanterre," where it is decided to include a national mobilization to Caen on June 18 in support of EPSM Caen. Indeed, after December 19, 2013, in the police against the hospital who was the door of the hospital, the director attack unions in administrative court. SUD and CGT were sentenced on April 30, 1000 euro fine each for having prevented by twice the CTE and HSC to meet. Also, anyone who would prevent "any way" the conduct of proceedings faces a fine of EUR 500 per day. On 18 June, some 600 hospitals, came by bus from Brittany and Paris and all of France, despite the strike at the SNCF, supported by SUD, CGT, FSU and UFAS (4) have demonstrated in the streets of Caen. Part of EPSM, the highest manifestation in color and very combative, went to the prefecture where a delegation has been received. She filed a motion asking the Ministry of Health not to minimize the anger of the hospital, deploring the prosecution and criminalization of their actions and demanding the repeal of the debt of hospitals and stop job cuts. During the picnic on the lawns of the prefecture, present different hospitals and unions and the entertainment took the floor. In the afternoon, the 200 people present at the General Assembly chose to be called "Convergence of hospitals in the fight against Hôstérité" logo is in progress to identify the movement all over France. The AG has decided to set up a liaison committee to ensure the information on ongoing struggles and coordination, this summer, actions oriented people, users and all hospital, a Thursday every 15 days, with a downbeat July 3. She wants the "convergence" with the institutions of social and medico-social and defense committees of local hospitals represented at the AGM. A national mobilization to the Ministry of Health on September 23, will be the next step. It is three weeks before the hearing on the financing plan for Social Security, which will determine the resources allocated to the health sector, private and public nursing home for the next year.??

Repression employer.

To impose budget cuts directions attacking the social gains and quality of care. A war of attrition against the militants and attacks the wallet is to muzzle the personal wrestling and unions. This shock employers of public service has all legal and disciplinary arsenal to silence any form of dissent organized: application of administrative tribunals, layoffs, assignments for interim relief, defamation charges, penalties ... Some examples: in Psychiatric Hospital Paul Guiraud in Villejuif, unions are assigned to occupation of premises; Arcachon, a militant is sanctioned by the government for exposing at a public meeting, the deterioration in his hospital care; Montauban, the unions have held assigned to the supervisory board hospital; EPSM to Caen, South and CGT are condemned to the Administrative Court for prevention hold pending and threatened a fine of EUR 500 per protester; Talence strikers are assigned to noise ... In the social and medico-social: the Anras (Association medical social) in Midi Pyrenees, defamation central business delegates; the Federation of Secular Works of Haute Savoie, dismissal Steward SUD and surveys militants, a private detective. Only a massive coordinated response and unitary institutions struggling is able to put an end to the criminalization of industrial action.

Attempts to coordinate struggles

In Caen on June 18, it is all the unions who were called to protest against threats to violate the fundamental freedoms to protest and to strike. Only FSU, CGT and Solidarity were present. Attempted three processions, intermittent, railway, hospital meeting at the prefecture, could not be realized. Intermittent attended the event. Users simultaneously organized a rally in support of the railway strike, they joined us in the prefecture. June 19 at the Montparnasse train station, a hospital delegation came to show support for the railway strike and gave them a point decided the day before the AGM Caen Hospitals in the fight against Hôstérité. In Caen, the Koordination of Intermittent Calvados occupy a place until late June and organized a march of 507 km. KIC called intermitent-es, temporary unemployed-honest-s,-es kicked, railworkers, employee-es EPSM, Caen and the region, prey to the same anti-social policies, to coordinate not to suffer without doing anything.

On the side of unions

The situation is different in different hospitals, but in most they are inter-union CGT / SUD who are the initiators of the struggles, where one of these organizations. If the South federation Social Health supported this early convergence of hospitals struggle, national CGT has little taste for coordination that may exceed it. Thus, although many unions CGT hospitals actively participate in this convergence, their federation disagreed at the first AGM of April 4 Caen, citing the difficulty of mobilizing and inviting us to a great demonstration of the CGT .. in September. On 18 June, the National CGT called for a mobilization with picket at each hospital, while their base unions joined the national event in Caen. In some places the protests are supported by FO or the CFDT. There is little that the Caen University Hospital who recently managed to abbreviations CFDT, CFTC, CGT, FO, SUD, UNSA, on top of a strike call, most wanted nowhere. The CFDT has long shown its collaboration with hospital managers. A EPSM Caen after participating in the mobilization of June 2013, the CFDT has negotiated in secret, during the summer with the direction, ready to let him crumbs. Since then, the CFDT has never stopped criticizing the fight and irresponsible trade unions which only increased the deficit of the hospital. A Paul Guiraud in Villejuif, the CFDT militants were ordered to leave the Inter leading a bitter strike with occupancy management and the courtyard since June 2 Union branch left massively CFDT and the struggle continues. Well-supported directors: SYNCASS-CFDT (5) involves the fact that the Directorate General of Health has received offer on June 17, the Inter-Paul-Guiraud, described as "union acting in the illegality. " He reiterated his support for the management of the institution and "regrets that the ministerial attitude does not ensure respect for the position of director." The CH-FO (hospital staff) provides that it "shall ensure that the authorities do not let 'alone in front' teams, management institutions, conduct essential to maintain the quality difficult reforms and efficiency of French hospitals, while budgets are lagging behind. " For its part, the Union of Public manageurs health (SMPS) expressed "deep concern at the plight faced by the management team," Paul Guiraud. "Given this situation, copy the increasing difficulty of Directors to conduct a peaceful social dialogue in the context of severe budgetary constraints, while the rule of law in their favor, the SMPS reiterates its commitment to respect, dialogue and accountability which that are at stake. He reaffirmed - and reaffirm - its total solidarity with all management teams who face physical and moral pressure in the exercise of their difficult mission. "

Only the struggle will pay!

The ongoing wrangle between hospital departments (supported by ARS, the government and some union confédés) and personal fighting, will see the outcome in a national mobilization forcing the Ministry of Health to increase the financial allocations the establishment. It is time for action in each hospital on July 3, and then every 15 days during the summer. The determination of hospital several hospitals has prevented many "modernization" of being already staffing plan. And it is a victory!
