Community Urges SJHS to Agree to Fair Union Election Process
ORANGE, Calif., Oct. 24 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Assemblyman Jose Solorio and activist Ed Begley, Jr., will be among those joining hospital workers from Mission Hospital, St. Joseph Hospital and St. Jude Medical Center at a procession Saturday outside the headquarters of the St. Joseph Health System.
For months, workers seeking to form a union at SJHS hospitals have asked the health system's leadership to agree to a "fair election agreement," which would allow them and their colleagues to discuss the issue of unionization in an environment free from harassment, pressure, and threats. Numerous other hospital systems, such as Catholic Healthcare West and Kaiser Permanente, have similar agreements with workers.
