Workers picket Sutter Health at Alta Bates Summit Medical Center

April 30th, 2009

Workers picketed Sutter Health-owned Alta Bates Summit Medical Center on Wednesday over layoffs and collusion with SEIU. Since SEIU took control of Sutter workers’ union in January, Sutter has reduced staffing levels in its hospitals, forcing Alta Bates Summit workers off the job for ten days a year and announcing the elimination of 200 jobs at nearby California Pacific Medical Center.
