Like you, we work hard every day to do the best job possible, build a strong spirit of community in our hospital, and provide a good life for our families.
But it’s becoming harder and harder for us to do our jobs and take care of our loved ones. Our workloads are increasing, staffing levels are too low, our pay is far below what other healthcare workers in this region earn and has not kept up with inflation, and we face disrespect on the job.
These struggles have grown even worse throughout the COVID pandemic. We’re forced to take on more work in more dangerous conditions with fewer staff. Many of us are facing physical fatigue and mental burnout— yet management refuses to address this crisis.
Let’s win a better future at Sharp Grossmont Hospital by uniting in SEIU–United Healthcare Workers West. SEIU-UHW is one of the largest unions of healthcare workers in the country with over 100,000 members who have a track record of winning higher wages, increased staffing, and a strong voice on the job.
As members of the SEIU-UHW Organizing Committee, we’ve talked to many of you about making improvements at Grossmont. Here are some of the things you’ve said we need:
- Raises and wages more in line with the industry standard in this region
- Increased staffing levels so we can provide first-rate patient care and avoid burnout
- A stronger voice so we have a real say in our workplaces
- Fairness and respect from management
Joining together in SEIU-UHW is our best opportunity to fight for and win on these priorities and more. So on November 21st, we filed for an election with the National Labor Relations Board to make our union official and start achieving these goals. We look forward to getting our election date very soon.
Let’s win a better future together here at Sharp Grossmont. Let’s unite in SEIU-UHW!
