More abolished executive positions


The objective of the Minister of Health, Gaetan Barrette, greatly reduce the number of managers in the Quebec network entails significant costs this year, including the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean, where they managed to remove even more leadership positions than expected.


In the region, the aim was to abolish thirty positions, but rather managed to cut 48, which resulted in total payments of $ 5 million.

Across Quebec, nearly $ 130 million will be paid in 2016 to managers whose position has been abolished, with the goal of reducing the number of frames 1300. Currently, 1140 positions were eliminated, representing 90 % of target.

These employees have opted for either a severance payment equal to one year's salary for either a retirement or early retirement.

This new goes wrong with the unions so that lately eight nursing positions were eliminated in nursing homes in the Saguenay to save $ 250,000.

"There are managers who are paid to do nothing at home. During that time, the problems are not resolved, "Monday launched the union official, Martine Coté\e.

The health authorities explained that this expenditure will turn into economy next year.

"In a year we will have finished paying these allowances and from 2017-2018, it will cost $ 5 million less for executive compensation," said Jean-Francois St-Gelais, spokesman CIUSSS Saguenay -Lake-Saint-Jean.

Martine Côté rather think that this amount will cover all costs of transport managers who now have to travel to Dolbeau-Mistassini to the borough of La Baie, Saguenay.

She estimates that workers now are struggling to find themselves in this mega structure. "We do not even know where the offices are. We still do not know who our real managers. There are so many decision-making levels that get lost, "said Côté.
