CISSSO protest

Bravo to the support staff of our medical facilities in Quebec for recently & publicly voicing their concerns with CISSSO’s administration.

Recently many health care support employees displayed, for the media and general public, placards describing their grievances with a health system that seems to be asking too much of its workers while provided too little to its patients.

By protesting chronic understaffing and poor working conditions in our health care facilities, our support staff workers have drawn the public’s attention once again to the many inadequacies that permeate the Quebec health care system.

We are at an opportune timeframe to advance the cause of health care service delivery, with a provincial election set for October 1st of this year. I hope to see all parties in Quebec investing considerable amounts of their own resources to examine health policy and service delivery.
