Members of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (known in Quebec as the Syndicat canadien de la fonction publique-SCFP) gathered yesterday in front of the Memphremagog Health and Social Services Centre to draw attention to their needs during local collective agreement negotiations.
According to SCFP representative Éric Bergeron, the union does not feel like they are being heard by upper management at the negotiation table.
“This is to show support for the employees,” Bergeron said. “It has been hard in recent years,” he added, explaining that working conditions have been a challenge since the 2015 administrative restructuring for all hospital workers, not just doctors and nurses.
