Unions and SAS still without an agreement: Health maintains its refusal to order privatization

Many hours of meeting between the Andalusian Health Service and representatives of the CSIF, CCOO, UGT, SMA and Satse on the technical board, which was scheduled for May 2, was not there, as before. an agreement was made between the parties. There will be a new meeting next week.

There were various things on the table. Almost the same as before Easter. Most important of all, how could it be otherwise, the order was issued by the Board with the framework for organizing the different services of the SAS. Among them, Primary Care, something that was never present in this type of prescription.

Halfway through the meeting there was already a feeling among those present that there was going to be no agreement, and therefore another meeting would be necessary later to find a consensus to improve the health of the Andalusian public.

The unions were already making progress this morning in the event that there was no progress, with the mobilizations scheduled for next week, May 4, continuing. “He will not stay without waiting for a negotiation, because no matter how much he tells us about the plan to negotiate, it is a lie,” said Antonio Macías, UGT spokesman, before going to the negotiating table.

The task was expected to be particularly complicated as the contract for 11,000 renovated toilets was brought to an end in six months. At the moment, the Board does not dominate the matter. The last time there were professionals in this matter, the Moreno Government shared an update a few days ago.

From the CCOO they explained that on this occasion the Andalusian Health Service must now “submit a document that includes the proposals of the union to improve the working conditions of the workers and improve the quality of care. The listening period has already ended and now is the time to roll up our sleeves and act seriously, because the deadlines are running”. However, after the meeting, a spokesman for the organization acknowledged the “desperate” pace of work.

Sources involved in the table indicate that the document presented a few weeks ago is being treated with little progress, especially in the Primary order. Neither in the improvement of remuneration, nor in the renewal of teachers.

Moreover, this Tuesday the demonstrations of the Andalusian Medical Union for the corruption of Primary Care continued. “If SAS does not act with determination, primary care medicine could disappear in less than a decade, leading the entire public health system to an unstable situation,” warned the union.

In this way, the SAS must know that our mobilizations “will not stop unless urgent improvements are constantly met” that require medical first aid. “Their face of the collapse of this key health sector is senseless, and will make their leaders solely responsible for the death of this key health sector,” he concludes.

In addition, the SMA this Wednesday in a press conference will tell Hispani the main obstacles in the negotiations with the Ministry of Health and Consumption of the Junta de Andalucía which, he indicates, “first of all, because of the denial. The SAS will comply with the limitation of medical appointments agreed last January”.
