Day 3: Kaiser mental health strike

Help document Kaiser’s failure to provide timely care
We need to help document Kaiser’s failure to provide timely care. If you have evidence of illegally delayed care or mass cancellations during the strike (for instance, evidence from non-NUHW Kaiser employees who are still working), please send that information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Join us Friday for a march and rally in Oakland
It’s important to show our strength and resolve as the first week of our strike comes to an end. Rather than fanning out to several picket lines, we’re coming together in Oakland for a march and rally with community allies, Kaiser patients and political leaders.
The march will begin at 10:45 a.m. outside the Oakland Medical Center at 3600 Broadway. We’ll march to the Ordway Building, 1 Kaiser Plaza for a noontime rally.
For people in the Sacramento region, there will be a chartered bus to Oakland leaving at 7 a.m. from the Mace Park n Ride Lot, 2629 Co Rd 32A, Davis.
For anyone needing financial support to sustain the strike, please contact email@example.com. We can discuss a number of options, including possible temporary per diem work with behavioral health practices we’ve reached out to.
Thursday picket lines
Thursday’s picket lines will be outside medical centers in Fresno, Redwood City, San Jose, San Leandro, San Rafael, Santa Clara, South Sacramento, Stockton, Vacaville, and Walnut Creek. You can see the full list of scheduled picket lines through August 26 here.
