The members of our Union of Patients come from many different backgrounds–but we are united by our fight for healthcare justice. We believe in quality patient care, access to affordable healthcare, and better living standards for everyone.
We are working families, students, and Medi-Cal/Medicaid and Affordable Care Act beneficiaries fighting together for Healthcare Justice — and we are working together with 95,000 healthcare workers for healthcare that works for everyone.
The healthcare industry puts profits over patients by making health insurance too expensive. This leaves many of us at risk due to fewer options to get care, severe understaffing at some of these facilities, and emergency room closures that many of us end up relying on. To fight these inequalities, we are working in our communities to protect access to affordable and quality healthcare for all.
So what do we do? We give people opportunities to take action for REAL CHANGE in their lives by building leadership in people’s own communities.
If you’ve attended an SEIU-UHW action, you’ve probably seen us there!
