UC hospital workers allege unsafe working conditions
AFSCME recently announced that its membership would begin voting on April 30 over whether to authorize a strike, following months of stalled negotiations over a contract that expired last September. Stenhouse, the union spokesperson, called it "the impasse of impasses" yet suggested to the Guardian that the strike authorization vote was a side issue from the concerns raised in the whistleblower report. The workers are there to "provide patient care," he told the Guardian. "They're not making Buicks."
"This report is about something much bigger than our members' livelihoods," Lybarger stated when the report was released. "It's about whether the UC is prioritizing quality care for the millions of Californians who put their lives in our hands."
