[March 14, 2014] RIVERSIDE, Calif. – Five-hundred twenty healthcare workers voted to improve patient care at a community hospital in Riverside by joining SEIU-United Healthcare Workers West.
“Every day we work so hard to take care of our patients, and by joining the union we’ll be able to make things better for them – which only helps the entire community,” said Jonathan Maya, a Unit Secretary at Parkview Community Hospital in Riverside. “With a union, we can have a strong voice in how care is delivered and make sure the experience of frontline workers is taken into account when care decisions are made.”
The Parkview workers include nurses, nursing assistants, medical records, food service, secretaries, respiratory therapists, and technicians in radiology, monitoring, emergency room, computerized tomography and nuclear medicine.
Founded in 1958, Parkview Community Hospital is a non-profit facility with 193 beds.
