Ethan Ruskin, Executive Committee, Kaiser District 6 – Healthcare Justice Slate

I am running for the position of Executive Committee Member for the San Jose and Santa Clara Medical Centers. I believe my experience as a Union Leader since 2007 will serve me well in this position. I have served on the Executive Board since 2014 and was recently elected to the Executive Committee for SEIU-UHW. In addition, I have Led the San Jose Medical Center as the main bargaining representative for the past two contracts with Kaiser. I look forward to serving as your Executive Committee Member. One of the biggest reasons I am proud to be a member of SEIU-UHW is that we do not only focus on our members and contracts but look to improve society. Being on the Executive Board for the past six years, I am proud that we voted to support the Fairness Project and have helped raise the minimum wage and expand Medicaid throughout the US. I look forward to finding more ways we can help raise standards, not only for ourselves, but for millions of people.
