NSGEU MEMBERS GETTING KICKED TO THE
“Just like garbage,” was how I felt said Murray MacNeil, a
counsellor attendant in detox on October 24 when termination notice was given
to him and 5 other full time employees of addiction services.
These Counsellor Attendants with their 95 years combined knowledge, training & experience, in the
addiction field received this
devastating verdict from Director of Mental Health & Addictions Linda
Corey stated since taking over as Director, three years ago, “making these jobs
redundant was part of our plan.” While
at the same time these counsellor attendants received repeated assurances their jobs were safe. Assurances that came from John Malcolm, former
CEO CBDHA, the Human Resource Department and Dr. Courey herself.
“To even imply through all of our training and experience
that we do not always put the best interests of our clients first is an insult
to every individual who has ever been impacted in any way by addiction,” says Margaret Graham, detox counsellor
“Our role positively impacts the people we
serve. Our MODEL OF CARE has always been
about what is best for our clients. We
want to continue to play a role in healthcare.”
STAND BY WHILE WE ARE KICKED TO THE CURB BY THE CAPE BRETON DISTRICT HEALTH AUTHORITY.
