Nurses and waste workers in action


The SEP nurses’ union took part in a week of action (7-11 December) coordinated by the CGTP trade union confederation. For the SEP the key issues are precarious employment, recruitment and working time. The union wants to see all nurses on precarious contracts switched to permanent employment and argues that all nurses, regardless of contract, should accumulate points for their career progression. The SEP is also calling for increased recruitment, an end to 12-hour shifts and action to ensure a 35-hour week. Meanwhile, workers employed by the EGF waste company handed in a petition to the company headquarters on 18 December calling for respect of trade union and collective bargaining rights, the negotiation of a unified collective agreement covering the whole company, a general wage increase as well as measures related to risk payments and health and safety.
