France - Student nurses win a victory over requisitions - December 10, 2009

Student nurses have won a victory in their battle to stop the government compelling them to work seven days a week for up to 14 hours a day in swine flu vaccine centres. Health minister Roselyne Bachelot-Narquin stated that student nurses cannot be requisitioned for more than ten hours a week or two sessions of five hours. In addition, student nurses are to get better pay. Earlier, student nurses opposed the conditions under which they were compelled to work in chaotic vaccine centres under the orders of bullying supervisors.
