Nurses and TS boycott acts that do not fall within their specialty.

The rift between the Union of Independent Nurses (SII) and the Ministry of Health continues to widen, leaving burning questions about working conditions within the nursing profession unresolved. At the heart of this discord are salaries and risk premiums, a source of harsh criticism from nurses, who deplore the lack of progress despite a social agreement signed more than a year ago.

The SII, a true spokesperson for nurses, believes that social dialogue has only resulted in partial solutions for some of the problems of nurses and health technicians, leaving behind two thirds of the profession who have obtained nothing. This situation of salary imbalance continues and the union remains firm in its demand for a fair salary increase for all members of the nursing profession.

The union’s grievances are not limited to unfair wages. He also points out that nurses are given tasks that do not correspond to their specialization, but which nevertheless remain crucial for the proper functioning of health centres. These tasks, not recognized administratively and financially, endanger the career of nurses at the slightest error.

Fatima Zahra Belline, a very active member of the SII, raised a key point regarding these additional tasks. According to her, nurses are forced to juggle their health responsibilities with the collection and processing of medical data, which ends up being used in the form of statistics by the Ministry of Health. This double burden places an excessive burden on nurses, affecting their time devoted to actual health care.

In the hope of putting pressure on the Ministry of Health and obtaining significant progress in their situation, some nurses choose to ignore these additional tasks, convinced that this will not compromise the quality of care provided to patients. For them, it is a way of forcing the guardianship to open negotiations on the financial and administrative aspects related to these tasks.

The SII insists on the need to redouble our efforts to obtain fair remuneration for nurses, but also to guarantee adequate compensation for the professional risks to which they are exposed on a daily basis. In addition, he urges the Ministry of Health to initiate a process of reviewing promotion conditions in order to better recognize the skills and commitment of nurses.

This fight for fair working conditions continues, and the Union of Independent Nurses remains determined to make its voice heard until concrete measures are taken in favor of the nursing profession. In the meantime, the pressure continues to mount, demanding a quick and balanced solution for this crucial issue that directly affects the very heart of the health system.
