The ver.di union has criticized the government’s plans to make facility-related vaccination compulsory. The employees in the health professions are already particularly stressed – physically and mentally, said Verdi board member Sylvia Bühler on Friday in the rbb-Inforadio.
At the same time, promised relief has so far hardly reached them.
“For years we have been running into wear and tear and exploiting the empathy of the employees. Indeed, it cannot be ruled out that people say, well, I have been hoping for years that something will improve – and instead we are now being taken into special responsibility again So maybe it is for some of the drops that the barrel overflows and they are leaving this wonderful job. ”
Therefore other solutions have to be found, said Bühler. It would be important to educate more, there is still room for improvement.
In general, ver.di advocates vaccination. But that is problematic if it only applies to certain professional groups. Bühler said: “The enforcement of compulsory vaccination or the consequences under labor law if there is no vaccination, although there is a compulsory vaccination. There are still many questions unanswered.”
The topic is also discussed controversially at ver.di. “Of course there are also many nurses who say – of course our professional group has to be vaccinated. And then of course there are also those who say I can’t even imagine that we are so close to our staffing levels (… ) if I imagine that two more people from our team will somehow leave their jobs, then the supply will collapse here. ” Bühler said that these are major fears that must be taken seriously.
