Sign the petition for COVID premiums on the National Assembly website
The APTS urges you to sign an online petition set up on the National Assembly website with the help of Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois, MNA for Gouin. This petition demands that health and social services professionals and technicians be given two premiums created in response to the pandemic, the 8% premium and the rising scale premium (which can reach $1000). All APTS members are entitled to these premiums, and especially those working in technical medical departments such as clinical labs, medical imaging, nuclear medicine, radiation oncology, and medical electrophysiology.
The petition asks the Québec government:
- to give the 8% premium (retroactively to April 4, 2020) and the rising scale premium to professionals and technicians who are entitled to it in institutions designated COVID-19 centres as of May 10, 2020;
- to create a premium specifically designed for professionals and technicians, retroactive to May 10, 2020, if it believes that the criteria and objectives of the 8% and rising scale premiums do not fit these employees' situation.
