The 112 workers demand the internalization of the service
The workers of 112 in Reus (Tarragona) and Zona Franca in Barcelona are fighting to improve the emergency service in Catalonia. The unions representing the workers have explained that they foresee new mobilizations to continue demanding the internalization of the service. This demand has been presented to the parliamentary groups in order to raise awareness of the need to improve the working conditions of the 112 workers.
Chronic understaffing affects emergency services
112 workers complain of a chronic lack of staff that has an impact on the loss of important emergency calls. This situation affects the ability to respond to fires, gender-based violence and other emergency situations. The workers demand an immediate solution to improve this situation and guarantee a professional and efficient emergency service.
The need for the internalization of the service
The 112 workers are asking for the internalization of the service to guarantee better management and greater direct responsibility of the Generalitat. Currently, the service is managed by an external company, but the workers consider that this option is not the most suitable to guarantee a good emergency service. The internalization of the service would improve the working conditions of the workers and guarantee a better response to emergencies.
The job and salary insecurity of the 112 workers
The 112 workers also denounce the job and salary insecurity to which they are subjected. Night shifts are paid at a very low rate and weekend work is not adequately remunerated. In addition, there have been cases of workplace and sexual harassment within the service, which have not been sufficiently attended to by the company. The workers are asking for their own agreement and better working conditions to guarantee a better family reconciliation and a quality emergency service.
