BOWSPRIT — The prime minister François Legault, has taken the unions on the confusion surrounding the accelerated training offered to fill 10 000 posts of orderlies.
In a press briefing on Friday afternoon, at Beaupré, Mr. Legault has warned that the “grumbling unions that want to protect part-time positions”.
He reiterated that the students in this accelerated training will be able to apply for full-time positions at a salary of 49 000 $.
Mr. Legault was assured that the current beneficiary attendants part-time will also be able to submit their candidacy for these positions.
He recalled that posts were displayed, and had not been filled prior to the pandemic.
The prime minister insisted that a company could never work with approximately 50 percent of its part-time staff, as would be the case in the network.
“This is a real problem, which is peculiar to Quebec. A problem that must be dealt with”, he argued.
“We will respect the rules of seniority, employees who are part-time will have the option to apply on the full-time positions. (…) One of the positions that are displayed for years,” added Mr. Legault.
At Beaupré, facing île d’orléans, Mr. Legault also promotes the acceleration of the work desired by his government, which is facing opposition in the national Assembly.
He argued that mayors and elected officials were “all supporters of protecting the environment, but the permissions are far too long”. Mr. Legault argued, inter alia, the importance of return to work in the construction sector.
