Hos­pi­tal em­ploy­ees sus­pended for aid­ing dog

Truro Daily News - - CANADA -

MON­TREAL — Four Que­bec City hos­pi­tal em­ploy­ees have been sus­pended after com­ing to the aid of

a dog stuck in a hot car ear­lier this sum­mer. The in­ci­dent oc­curred in early July at Que­bec City’s L’En­fan­tJe­sus Hos­pi­tal. Em­ploy­ees brought the dog into an air-con­di­tioned of­fice for about four hours and gave it wa­ter. Two sep­a­rate unions that rep­re­sent the four em­ploy­ees say their mem­bers re­ceived sus­pen­sions rang­ing be­tween three and eight days. Both unions say they are griev­ing the sus­pen­sions they call un­rea­son­able. A spokesman for the hos­pi­tal cen­tre says in a state­ment the em­ploy­ees in ques­tion were sanc­tioned be­cause they con­tra­vened rules that for­bid most an­i­mals from be­ing in­side the hos­pi­tal.
