Thousands of California Healthcare Workers Strike to Protect Their Patients
Date:8/27/2008

Daughters of Charity Health System Continues to Jeopardize Patient Care

DALY CITY, Calif., Aug. 27 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Thousands of healthcare workers will hold a one-day strike throughout California on Thursday to improve patient care in the Daughters of Charity Health System. Caregivers were forced to strike in response to management's refusal to negotiate fairly over proposals aimed to help ensure quality medical treatment and to protest several unfair labor practices employed by hospital administrators.

Caregivers will form picket lines at 6 a.m. and continue for 24 hours. The demonstration will occur simultaneously at five hospitals: St. Francis Medical Center near Los Angeles, Seton Medical Center in Daly City, Seton Coastside in Moss Beach, St. Louise Regional Hospital in Gilroy, and O'Connor Hospital in San Jose.

More than 2,400 caregivers represented by SEIU United Healthcare Workers- West have been in negotiations since March. Workers have proposed plans to increase the ability to recruit and retain healthcare professionals and create quality jobs in the industry. However, administrators continue to bargain in bad faith, and they have repeatedly dismissed common sense policies. These actions are putting patient care at risk.

WHAT: Statewide strike to protect patient care

WHO: Healthcare workers, community allies, political supporters,
