USC Workers On Strike Tomorrow

NewsOctober 11, 2011

Tomorrow beginning at 6am, nearly 700 NUHW members at USC University Hospital will be on strike for 24 hours.

USC workers are asking management to agree to provide frontline caregivers with a contractually enforceable means of addressing short-staffing problems that compromise patient care. To date, their proposal to protect patients has been rebuffed by hospital administrators, even though the university holds a $2.9 billion endowment and the hospital generated $3 million in profits in the last fiscal quarter alone.

If you’re in the L.A. area, join us on the picket line!

When: Tomorrow, Wednesday, October 12th, beginning at 6am. Picket lines from 6am – 6pm. Strike for 24 hours.

Where: USC University Hospital, 1500 San Pablo St., Los Angeles
