Quebec and the Federation of Health and Social Services (FSSS-CSN) reached an agreement in principle on Friday regarding the funding and terms of service for Intermediate Resources (IR) and Family-Type Resources (RTF).
This agreement aims to renew two group agreements for these services, one for children and one for adults.
“I would like to thank the negotiating teams whose work enabled them to deliver this initial agreement. This demonstrates, once again, that we care about resource concerns as service providers, by offering better working conditions and practice, but also to users who deserve to receive quality care and support,” Sonia confirmed in a press release Lebel, Minister in charge of Governmental Administration and President of the Conseil du trésor.
As usual for this type of agreement, no details would be revealed until everything was accepted by the guild members.
Intermediate resources and family-type resources are essential partners in the health and social services network. “The agreement will improve the quality of services and the well-being of users as well as better meet changing needs,” said Margaret Bliss, Minister Responsible for Older Persons and Caregivers.
FSSN-CSN represents 1268 resources, i.e. 754 are for children and 514 are for adults.
