School nurse in Rieumes, a former soldier disputes the calculation of his seniority. The State would ignore his 25 years spent in the Army … He planned to stay several days in front of the rectorate. While giving advice on cardiac massage and the use of a defibrillator to passers-by.
Albert Cazau Pedarre is a nurse at the Robert Roger de Rieumes college. This Monday morning, he began an action in front of the Rectorate of Toulouse, in principle until the beginning of next week (only the day), in order to state the discrimination of which he is a victim. Equipped with his information panels and other documents, Albert explains his situation to passers-by who wonder and takes the opportunity to offer them an introduction to cardiac massage and the installation of a defibrillator.
Supported by his school nursing colleagues, teachers and teachers and staff from the college of Rieumes, many people received to take turns in Toulouse in order to support his action.
Albert Cazau Pedarre has been a school nurse since September 2008, but was a military nurse for almost 25 years, the oldest of his “category” and he is also the only one in France not to have received a derogatory decree allowing former soldiers to recover their seniority for a recalculation of steps.
“I am the only one in France in this case”
The National Education recognizes him only 5 years of military career. The school nurse thus finds himself at a much lower level than his colleagues who are members of a lower military seniority. “I am the oldest, I am the one with the longest military career and I am the only one in France not to benefit from a derogatory classification to which I am entitled. […] How can a former military nurse, recognized as a veteran and a victim of war, holder of the title of Recognition of the Nation, holder of Academic Palms, Gold medalist of National Defense, can he find himself the victim of discrimination on the part of the Toulouse academy? Albert asks.
For 13 years now, he has been pursuing long legal proceedings which unfortunately do not change the situation. “What touches me the most is the contempt I have had to face for 13 years. […] The consequences are serious: legal costs, psychological burden on the family, and since the end of January 2021 wage seizures for compensation to be paid to the Rectorate ”, deplores Albert Cazau Pedarre.
