The last day we met with management for bargaining, we were prepared to submit important proposals to address staffing and safety. But management walked away from negotiations. They continue to maintain their battle stance. They were unwilling to come to this week’s scheduled bargaining sessions. Meanwhile, our Bargaining Team again met to work on proposals that will address critical safety issues.
Thursday, August 27 Join us outside in front of the hospital. We’ll take action and take our message to the community!

- Poor isolation of COVID and suspected COVID patients
- Poor hospital sanitation
- Inadequate testing and quarantine policies for staff
- Lack of lifesaving equipment in COVID units, including oximeters
