Unions File Charges Against Tenet Healthcare Corporation, Three Northern California Hospitals
Date:9/26/2007

OAKLAND, Calif., Sept. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- SEIU United Healthcare Workers-West and SEIU Local 121RN have filed for injunctive relief seeking to stop Tenet Healthcare Corp. from cutting health benefits for nearly 7,000 California hospital employees, including registered nurses, pharmacists, licensed vocational nurses, respiratory care practitioners, radiology technicians, surgical technicians, and certified nursing assistants.

Workers represented by the two unions have been in negotiations with Tenet Healthcare for nearly a year. In June, Tenet and the workers reached an agreement on maintaining all health benefits and costs. Last week, however, Tenet changed their position and announced that they plan to cut benefits beginning in November, during the open enrollment period with PacifiCare, which administers the corporation's health plan.

"Other hospital chains have worked collaboratively with healthcare workers on ensuring those who dedicate their lives to providing healthcare don't lose their own healthcare," said Sina Howe, an LVN at Garden Grove Hospital. "We are dedicated to delivering quality care, and that's why we are fighting for a contract that puts patients first."

The unions have filed Unfair Labor Practice charges with the National Labor Relations Board against 14 California hospitals and Tenet Healthcare Corp. for failure to bargain over changes to the health plan. Hospitals affected include:

Desert Regional Medical Center, Palm Springs

Doctors Hospital, Manteca

Doctors Medical Center, Modesto

Encino-Tarzana Regional Medical Center, Encino

Encino-Tarzana Regional Medical Center, Tarzana

Garden Grove Hospital and Medical Center

Irvine Regional Hospital and Medical Center

John F. Kennedy Memorial Hospital, Indio

Lakewood Regional Medical Center

Los Alamitos Medical Center

San Ramon Regional Medical Center

Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center, San Luis Obispo'/>"/>
