Dolores Huerta to Join Workers at Candlelight Vigil

Labor Leader Calls on St. Joseph Health System to Treat Pro-Union Workers Fairly

ORANGE, Calif., Dec. 10 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Labor leader and activist Dolores Huerta will stand with workers from the St. Joseph Health System at a candlelight vigil on Thursday, where she will join their call for a set of fair ground rules protecting the rights of those who are seeking to form a union at the health system's hospitals.

For months, caregivers in Orange County have been working toward organizing a union in order to address critical patient-care issues at their hospitals, such as understaffing. However, their efforts have been met with harassment, pressure and threats from hospital managers bent on stopping unionization at all costs.

As a result, workers seek a "fair election agreement" with the health system, which would allow them and their colleagues to discuss the issue freely while protecting their right to a secret-ballot union election. Numerous other hospital systems, such as Catholic Healthcare West and Kaiser Permanente, have similar agreements with workers.

WHAT: Procession and candlelight vigil by community supporters

urging the Sisters of St. Joseph to negotiate a Free and

Fair Election Agreement for a union election at their

hospitals
