2015年勞動節「縮工時,反過勞」、「要加薪,反派遣」大遊行

 

護理人員打點滴上班的畫面屢見不鮮,本會調查護理人員工時往往長達10-12小時,長工時不僅帶來身體負荷,由於工作本質所付出專注力,以及工作中所需展現的情緒愈多樣,護理師必須投入更多的心力來規畫各種可能發生的狀況以及適當的情緒應對,例如面對瀕死病人及家屬等,急診室近年暴力事件頻傳,因此造成情緒勞務負荷重,後果是過勞與職業災害,包括憂鬱、流產、感染針頭紮針、上下班車禍、甚至自殺等等,被犧牲的是民眾照顧品質。也就是當你需要被救治時,護理人員早已生病、離職,無法發揮專業服務!

雖然自10411日起護理行業排除適用勞基法84條之一的責任制,然而修法將每周法定工時縮減為單周40小時,卻為資方大開後門,讓加班工時上限,從每月46小時,增加到54小時,102年勞動部公布勞動檢查結果醫療院所有將近48%不及格,延長工時卻未給加班費高達17件,可見修法後將雪上加霜,促使護理勞動條件更形惡化,勞動部為財團服務,藐視勞工權益,我們在勞動節站出來,表達我們最嚴厲的抗議,呼籲勞動部盡速檢討,下修加班工時至40小時,維護護理勞動正義!

Statement of Labor Day 5/1 March

By Taiwan Nurses Union

On the May 1st of the International Labor Day, the Taiwan Nurses Union joins the protest march with all labor unions of Taiwan in front of the Presidential Palace in Taipei, Taiwan. Our Slogan includes, cut working hour; against overwork; pay increase; against outsourcing. The shocking picture of a nurse being sick with IV drip but still working has been viewed widely on Taiwan media. Based on our investigation, nurses tend to delay getting off work and extend working hours up to 10-12 hours per shift in average. Long hours of working not only resulted in physical burden, emotional labor remains extreme high due to diverse, changeable and high concentration demand nature of the nursing job, ie. facing dying patients and their families. Both physical burden and emotional labor have detrimental effects on nurses. Studies indicated that high prevalence rate of occupational hazards include depression, abortion, needle stick injury, accidents on the way to work, or even suicide. Consequently, quality of patient care would be compromised and patients may face illness without nursing care at all. The rate of quitting nursing job in Taiwan remains high in 15.8% and up to 21.3% for new employees.

Although our Labor Standards Law has been amended to exclude nursing out of Article 84-1 which means to set the upper limit of working hours for nurses to 230 per month in 2014. Recent amendment of the Labor Standards Law shortens working hours per week to 40 in April, 2015, it simultaneously allows the extension of overtime hours to 54 hours 8 hours longer than originally allowed. All labor unions including nurses union were appalled with the amendment. The report of Ministry of Labor in Taiwan in 2014 indicated that almost 50% of health care industry did not pass the labor inspection in 2013 and up to 17 facilities have working our related violation, especially workers delayed off without receiving extra pay. We believe this amendment certainly aggravates working condition of nurses and deprive nurses right to rest. We stand up today and join all labor unions in Taiwan voice our loudest protest against the unfair amendment from the Ministry of Labor. We demand the re-opening of negotiation on working hours with labor unions and cut upper limit of overtime to only 40 hour per month.
