Labor board rules Tesla must let workers wear union clothing

  Labor board rules Tesla must let workers wear union clothing DETROIT (AP) — The National Labor Relations Board has reversed a Trump-era decision by finding that Tesla can't stop factory employees from wearing clothing with union insignia while on the job. The board, in a 3-2 decision released Monday, overruled a 2019 NLRB decision involving Walmart and union clothing. The board wrote that a 1945 Supreme Court decision established the precedent for allowing the clothing. It ordered Tesla to stop enforcing an “overly broad” uniform policy that effectively stops production workers at Tesla's Fremont, California, factory from wearing black shirts with the United Auto Workers union's logo.

The first union of liberal doctors in France said it was opposed this Wednesday, September 28, 2022 to the implementation of coercive measures which could force young doctors to settle in medical deserts.

Several law proposals were submitted to the National Assembly during the summer in order to restrict the freedom of installation of doctors or to establish coercion for liberal doctors, according to him.

This measure "does not work" in the countries where it was tested

such a measure could be a solution to fight against medical deserts, while 6 million French people have not declared a treating doctor, according to the Caisse Nationale health insurance (CNAM).

But this measure does not work in the countries where it has been tested, such as Canada or Germany, according to Franck Devulder.

For the CSMF, the lack of doctor in certain territories is mainly linked to the establishment, several decades ago, of the numerus clausus limiting the number of medical students, despite the knowledge of the effects of baby boom (which) would lead many doctors to retire between the years 2010 and 2030.

This additional year, planned in the social security budget for 2023, would be carried out outside the hospital and in priority in under-to-do areas. A measure promoting installation in medical deserts, but not forcing it.

To remedy the lack of a doctor, the CSMF proposes to enhance the expertise to release care time and promote the coordinated exercise in city medicine, using care teams, multidisciplinary health homes or territorial health communities (CPTS).
