While we were at negotiations with management on September 26, hundreds of dialysis caregivers at 21 Fresenius and Satellite clinics across California made history with our first unfair labor practice strike against the dialysis corporations.

Our striking coworkers brought the energy of the strike line to our bargaining session, forcing the Fresenius management team to sit eye-to-eye with more than 60 dialysis leaders who have committed to fight back against management’s unfair labor practices.

Together, we watched Fresenius offer counter proposals that would deny us any improvements to our health insurance, retirement security, or education benefits. Regional Vice President Mohammed Bari, and Senior Director of Operations Todd White were notably absent from the bargaining table for the first time.

Now it’s our turn to turn up the heat on Fresenius! Our unfair labor practice strike is next week, and we are demanding they bargain in good faith and hear our concerns about understaffing and low wages that are putting our coworkers and patients at risk.

Stand up to management on the strike line Monday, October 2 and Tuesday, October 3 from 7am to 3pm at Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla: 9888 Genesee Ave San Diego, CA 92037.
