HHS-Employed Housekeepers Fight for Fair Treatment by Los Alamitos Medical Center
December 20th, 2010
Housekeepers employed by Hospital Housekeeping Systems (HHS) are currently working for poverty wages at Los Alamitos Medical Center, without affordable healthcare coverage and without adequate staffing. But after workers unanimously ratified a groundbreaking tentative agreement with HHS, the hospital announced that it may discontinue its contract with the subcontractor, costing HHS workers their collective bargaining agreement and possibly their jobs.
Last week, NUHW housekeepers picketed Los Alamitos Medical Center to urge the hospital to do the right thing and renew its contract with the subcontractor.
