TRADE unions representing the staff of Son Espases hospital have requested the immediate dismissal of the hospital’s manager Victor Ribot and his team.In a letter, trade unions CCOO, CSI-F and STEI-I have given a comprehensive list of reasons to support their request against Mr Ribot.They claim that since Mr Ribot took over the hospital management two years ago the rate of workplace accidents has dramatically increased, and contracts were frequently unstable. They say there have been massive staff cutbacks in all departments, and patients have to pay for a place in the facility’s car park, which they described as ‘dirty and unsafe’.The trade unions criticise a lack of cleanliness and personnel, and ‘disastrous working conditions’ at the hospital’s kitchen, problems with waste collection and a run-down building.The letter explains that patients’ complaints have significantly increased, especially regarding the poor conditions of the food served, and a growth of waiting lists, amongst many other reasons unveiled in the document.For these reasons they have called for the hospital to be transferred to public ownership and the current management board to be removed.
