The agents of the IDEF, a departmental institute for children and families, located in Bron, are angry. They demonstrate this Tuesday, May 4, 2021 in front of the establishment from 1 p.m., because they are excluded from the Ségur de la Santé agreements, signed in July 2020.
Employees of the Departmental Institute for Children and Families located in Bron are not affected by the measures of the Ségur de la Santé agreements signed on July 13, 2020, nor by the memorandum of understanding of February 2021.
The establishment employs nurses, auxiliaries, specialized educators … in all, more than 300 employees.
The Ségur de la santé agreements, signed last summer, are supposed to enhance the medico-social professions. But, according to the intersyndicale of the Departmental Institute for Children and Families of Bron, “wages still haven’t budged”.
Several letters, according to the unions, were sent to the president of the Métropole de Lyon, Bruno Bernard, in charge of the management of the departmental institute for children and families to ask to be part of the Ségur de la Santé agreements. . The letters remained unanswered according to the intersyndicale.
”In the mail, explains a union representative, we ask the president of the Métropole de Lyon to intervene with the Ministry so that we too are entitled to the agreements of the Ségur de la Santé. We welcome many, many children, but there are not enough of us. The workload is very heavy. Staff on sick leave are not always replaced. We need more specialized educators, nurses, auxiliaries … and that is the Métropole de Lyon which manages”.
The forgotten ones of Ségur
IDEF employees are social and medico-social personnel. But they cannot benefit from the measures concluded in the Ségur de la Santé agreements. The Ségur de la Santé agreements of July 2020 devote 8.2 billion euros to the upgrading of professions in health establishments and EHPADs, as well as to the attractiveness of the public hospital. In all, 33 measures had been concluded.
IDEF employees cannot benefit from the agreement extended to other structures either. Indeed, on February 11, 2021, a memorandum of understanding was signed to extend the Ségur upgrading to staff of social and medico-social establishments, as of June 1, 2021.
Almost a year after the signing of the Segur agreements, agents are tired of waiting. Angry and tired, they decided to go on strike and demonstrate this Tuesday afternoon, May 4, in front of the departmental institute for children and families.
