Nurses in Baja California Sur protest against lack of bases

Nurses of the Juan María de Salvatierra Hospital in the municipality of La Paz, as a representative of the medical staff of Baja California Sur, They clearly complained about the lack of transparency in basic allocation decisions in the healthcare facility; They argue that the grant process was not fair.

They were told that the reason why the authorities decided not to allocate bases to nursing staff was due to deficiencies in the files. but the workers assure that everything was done on time.

“It is not possible that the answer was that our files were not well prepared. We always made sure everything was okay. As they asked us to do, we did it. It’s not possible for the answer to be “There are no files assembled correctly…” one employee pointed out.

There is currently no further date for the granting of bases. The staff assured that there are doctors and nurses who have been working for more than 10 years spends time observing the irregularities surrounding the order. In fact, some of those who received job formalization You have worked at the hospital for less than three months.

“We know that seniority really begins when we work with a base. But now the seniority we wanted to respect was precisely the base assignment. I’m 10 years old, it’s my turn; The partner who has eight takes their turn; and the partner who has two should wait for the last stage. It’s fair, but it wasn’t done that way and there is no answer, there is no why, there is no clear answer to what the problem was, how it was decided, who yes and who no,” said a nurse.

There are more than 300 male and female nurses across the state who say they have been affected. since in reality there are 258 bases specified at the state level, the 564 that the federal government had promised. Therefore, This doesn’t just affect the Salvatierra Hospital, explained the nursing staff.

“It is also worth noting that at the level here in La Paz there is not only trouble from colleagues from San Lucas, San José del Cabo, Comondú; Anesthesiologists, they say that we don’t have them and that there is a shortage of doctors, there is a lack of specialists… No, doctors have been left out, anesthesiologists and nurses have been left out,” a worker stressed.

It should be noted that nursing staff earn less than 6,000 pesos every two weeks They receive no transportation, no medical care, no right to daycare, no gas, or no employee benefits.; They emphasized that this was a reflection of the job insecurity and insecurity that they have suffered for years.

“We were responsible enough to be there and ultimately the fact that we are not taken into account creates insecurity, creates uncertainty and also creates a feeling of insult for all of us because we are not asking for it for ourselves, but for our families. ; And we would also like to say and make it clear that this is not directed against the colleagues who received this benefit. We were just told that we would all benefit, and in the end one benefited and some didn’t. And we had no advantage,” said one worker.

On September 14, the workers had a meeting with Doctor Bogdan Arriaga Benis, the new representative of the Mexican Institute of Social Security (IMSS) in Baja California Sur, but His answer wasn’t very empathetic. According to the medical staff, the manager expressed this “were not jealous” of the grant to those who had the advantages of the base.

Having a base means economic stability, a higher salary, bonus, paid vacation; Among other benefits that all nurses definitely crave, they emphasized that workers truly trusted that they would respect everyone’s right to seniority, as the federal government had instructed them to do.
