(en) Greece, rocinante: April 22: We continue the struggle thread of the health movement, we catch the struggle thread for May Day [machine translation]

Date Tue, 27 Apr 2021 10:05:10 +0300

After the very dynamic mobilizations, on April 7, at the gates of the hospitals, the health movement continues en masse and in a coordinated manner with another work stoppage on Thursday, April 22 and march towards the Ministry of Health. From the beginning of the pandemic and its government management, the health movement invented ways to mobilize in terms of social union rather than union while respecting the terms of protection. Healthcare workers along with the majority of society are called upon to give once again a dynamic response to the class and catastrophic management of the pandemic. The NSS is in complete collapse, no matter how much the well-paid media try to hide it.

Neither the fact that ICUs were never enough, nor the dozens of deaths of patients in simple wards, nor the fact that hospitals remain understaffed in the middle of the third wave of the pandemic, despite the ridiculousness of mobilization and other such comedic tragedies at the time remain spectators of the total collapse of the health system and its workers. A mix of criminal neoliberal policies with "accordion" systems and class repression against unions and workers has been the government's choice since the NSS's problems grew. Revenge dismissals of trade unionists, selective movements, threats and expulsion are the reality for many colleagues. These are exactly the workers, permanent and contract workers, who have lifted and are lifting the weight of the pandemic every day. These are exactly those who so hypocritically applauded the Prime Minister and the Minister of Health, while at the first opportunity he sent them the MAT and accused them even of spreading the coronavirus, proving to the health workers, as well as to the whole society, that for a state of emergency far-right options are one way.

The whole working class, which mainly bears the burden of the pandemic and the collapse of the public health system, has a thousand reasons to join the health workers and every branch that goes on strike, as the class management of the health crisis means an unprecedented attack by Chapter. The bill that was passed in the winter and the one that comes for the new labor norms and conditions, are a step back in times before the conquest of the 8 o'clock. This year's May Day is not only essential, but also literally topical,

As a Health Sector of A.P. Rosinante we invite all health workers to participate in the mobilizations, making the following demands:

* Brave increase of state funding for the public health system.

* Involvement of the private health sector here and now.

* Immediate measures for the complete reopening of regular clinics and surgeries in the public health system.

* Creation of the necessary number of vaccination centers within the framework of P.F.Y. in suitable places and their staffing with recruitment of permanent staff.

* Mass recruitment of permanent, full-time and exclusive staff. * Permanent tenure without terms and conditions of all auxiliaries and contractors.

* Restoration of our salaries to the levels before the 2012 cuts and granting due dues.

* Joining the B.A.E ..

* Granting an unhealthy work allowance.

* Definition of coronavirus disease as an occupational disease.

* Insurance coverage of civil liability by the state and employers.
