This is an important first step for Ségur that is emerging: the revaluation of the salaries of caregivers and non-medical personnel was validated this Friday, July 10 by three majority unions.
On the table, 7 and a half billion euros and an increase in wages. 183 euros net per month will be added to salaries in two stages: 90 euros on September 1, then 93 euros on March 1. A sum less than the 300 euros net claimed before Ségur, but this remains a significant advance according to the unions. “183 euros for a hospital services agent, that’s about 20% increase. This is the most important protocol we have ever had“, Welcomes Françoise Kalb, national secretary of the UNSA public and private health and social federation.
Towards a mobilization on July 14
The plan also provides for an upgrading of the salary scales for caregivers and medico-technical staff. It will allow them a faster career development. Finally, the agreement provides for the hiring of 7,500 people to fill vacant positions. Insufficient progress according to some nurses. “We were asking for an increase of 300 to 400 euros initially. 180 euros which are accepted quickly, I think there is something behind that has also been negotiated. It remains to be seen what“, Asks one of them. The non-signatory unions of Segur are calling for a mobilization on July 14. Hospital doctors, meanwhile, are still negotiating.
