ELA denounces that the elderly wake up at 6:15 in the morning at the residence La Paz de Donostia

  • The residence La Paz de Donostia is managed by the GSR cooperative of the Mondragón group, located in the district of Egia. Waking up so early produces more workload and worse care for the elderly.

ELA reports that workers who have night time at the residence La Paz de Donostia have a cleaning order at 6:15 in the morning. In other residences, it is usually done at 8:00. This raises major problems for both the elderly and the workers. "Older people wake up very early, despite having breakfast at 9:00 hours, so they have a bad break and then influence their daily situation," he said.

In addition, residents who need other care at that time cannot be properly attended to, as workers cannot perform cleaning tasks while properly attending to the rest of the demands.

Faced with this situation, the staff of the centre have shown their indignation at the cooperative GSR, of the group that manages the residence. In addition, workers have denounced poor working conditions, lack of organisation, heavy workload, unfavourable timetables and lack of payment. ELA denounces the Directorate's lack of attention to avoid reinforcing certain shifts and charging more work to those on night shifts. They report that the Provincial Council of Gipuzkoa has been informed of this and that the situation directly affects the welfare of workers and residents of the centre.
