Emergencies : the mobilization does not weaken

Everything was gone in a series of violence at the beginning of march in a hospital in paris. The last straw for staff pushed to the limit, in the image of their services reached saturation. Since then, the strike movement unprecedented spread to nearly half of the emergency services in the public sector - 239 this Tuesday, according to the collective Inter-Emergencies, 195 according to the latest count available from the ministry of Health.

The attendance of emergencies has more than doubled in twenty years, with 21.4 million of recorded passages in 2017. At the same time, some 100,000 beds have been removed in the hospitals, which are now less than 400,000. A lack of capacity, coupled with a recent upsurge of behaviors unacceptable to have triggered an anger that does not seem to fall back: if the "protocols of exit of strike action" were signed in 28 sites, the inter-emergencies indicates new mobilizations, and organises a general assembly, on 10 September, on the eve of a national day of action expanded in the public and private hospitals, at the initiative of the CGT. The union will call a strike and provides a demonstration in Paris. Yesterday Monday evening, the minister of Health Agnes Buzyn has unveiled a new round of measures to reduce congestion in the emergency services, and has promised more announcements next week, but the professionals of the sector have not yet responded.

And there is little chance that their demands are met, as they differ from the proposals of the government, which also sees the problems of organization of emergency services. At the heart of the claims, posts to the "emergency and all of the services" hospital, "the judgment of the closures of beds and services," and a salary increase. On these points, the premium paid at the beginning of the summer by the government (€70 million) has not had the effect expected by the government. The sum was initially intended to fund a monthly premium of € 100, - net to all the nurses and orderlies of public emergencies, effective July 1. The promise is proving to be materialized on the payroll, the strikers have not disarmed and continue to demand more jobs and beds. The envelope announced by Agnès Buzyn had to also serve to recruit reinforcements in the summer in order "that there are no holes in the lines of the guard".

Now, the fear of the executive, it is the contagion of rebellion to other areas of Health. "Everyone is in agreement on the report", acknowledged in August the member of parliament (LREM) Thomas Mesnier, to which Agnès Buzyn has commissioned a report for the fall with the chief of the Samu of Paris, Professor Pierre Carli. The former paramedic says he has "no taboo" on the subject, and entrust work, among other things, on "the funding model for emergencies". In any case, up until the recent announcements of the minister, nothing has been able to impress the supporters of the movement. Hugo Huon, president of the collectif Inter-emergencies, warned a few days ago: "we will still be there to criticize the report Carli-Mesnier when it comes out".
