Their video went viral, reaching more than five million views on Facebook, and more than 200,000 on Youtube in a week. The CHU Toulouse's struggling caregivers sent a strong message to their leadership and the government, drawing on Orelsan's famous "Basic" clip. With the operation "We redo the game", the trade unionists of the CGT wish to mobilize even more widely health care staff, the CHU but also clinics and Ehpad Toulouse and surroundings. Rendez-vous is given Friday, June 22, at 14:30, in Purpan, to turn the clip again.
The purpose of this clip is to show the aberrations of the current system of care that every professional lives in his flesh, as well as the worrying direction he imprints. Orelsan's refrain "you do not have the basics" is a good illustration of the ever-growing gap between the managerial and financial logics and the ethics of professionals, attached to the "bases" that are the social security system, universal access and non-marketability.
The profit for society, which is the care provided by caregivers in hospitals, long-term care homes and clinics, is not quantifiable and can not therefore follow the financial logic of profitability. The alarm has been sounding for a long time but the logic of doing more with less tied to the pricing of the activity (T2A) and lean-management (lean = degreased, management "at the fair"), as well as the sabotage of the public service deepens. This results in serious consequences for the care of patients and increasingly unbecoming working conditions for caregivers.
At the University Hospital of Toulouse, the deficit this year is 14 million euros, which would "force" to further reduce the workforce. However, the latter has paid 43 million euros in taxes (payroll tax) and 60 million euros in debt repayment (with banks because the state has withdrawn from hospital investment. ..).
Thus, this video must serve to make it clear that nothing is inevitable, the victory of the Rouvray strike proves it, that it is about political choices that every hospital, clinic, EHPAD, service, must constitute committees in connection with the trade unions and get organized to prepare white tides as soon as possible!
