AN OPEN LETTER TO SEIU/UHW MEMBERS
Dave Regan’s Secret Deal to Cut Your Health Benefts, Pensions, and Your Job. All, so theHospitals Can Make Even More Money – On Top o $4 Billion in Profts Last Year Alone.
In May Regan signed a secret partnership deal with the Caliornia Hospital Association (CHA),your bosses’ lobbying frm
The partnership’s goal—to help hospital corporations “lower costs,” and “promote efciency.” How?
By eliminating pensions and cutting pay, benefts and jobs or SEIU/UHW members, and making you work harder andlonger or lessBy eliminating nurse stafng ratios that save thousands o patient lives, including lives o SEIU/UHW members and your amilies when you are ill and need hospital careBy lobbying in Sacramento to protect hospital profts
WHO IS THE CALIFORNIA HOSPITAL ASSOCIATION?
Every year CHA fghts in Sacramento to:
Lower the wages o workersDo away with unionsDo away with break and meal periodsDo away with laws limiting orced overtime
A PARTNERSHIP THAT PUTS A KNIFE IN YOUR BACK
Regan says he is fghting to “save” the hospitals rom $200 million in budget cuts.But where do you think your bosses will put that money? Will that stop layos? Will they stop attacking your health beneftsand pensions? Or will they just put the money back in their own pockets?Caliornia hospitals made $4 billion in profts in 2010. How much more do they need?Instead o helping the hospitals make more profts, Regan should have joined with nurses to fght hospital attackson all workers.
THE NURSES WILL ALWAYS SUPPORT OTHER HOSPITAL WORKERS— BUT WE WILL NEVER SUPPORT DAVE REGAN.
WHICH SIDE ARE YOU ON?
