Fifty Taams employees will probably be dismissed
WILLEMSTAD – About 50 of the 152 employees employed at the private clinic Taams will probably be dismissed. This is according to the management of the embattled health care institution.
The clinic will have to receive approval from the court of justice for this collective dismissal.
According to the Director of the clinic, Earl Esseboom, Taams is in the remediation process and this measurement is necessary for the financial healing of the clinic, which is facing very difficult times.
Layoffs are inevitable as the salaries are a large part of the operational costs of the clinic. During these last years, Taamshas seen a significant decline in its income. “The salaries put a heavy pressure on our financial situation,” said Esseboom during an interview with the media.
The union representing the nurses employed at the clinic, the CBV, has been negotiation with the curator about the impending reorganization.
