Jon D. Portez, Executive Committee-Kaiser, Kaiser District 1 – Healthcare Justice Slate

My fellow Kaiser workers, I’ve been a union activist from our Medi-Cal campaign to our recent Kaiser strike campaign. Being part of the bargaining team for Downey, I know four years down the road we face an even harder fight against our employer as fewer workers are in unions. We all need to take part and change that narrative. This is why I am joining the HEALTHCARE JUSTICE SLATE and making sure that we solidify our unity amongst union members with strong leadership. I’m running as Executive Committee for District 1, and part of the Healthcare Care Justice team. My goal is to make sure all members within my district have the best representation and voice.

As Healthcare Justice advocates, we need to support legislators who are passionate about healthcare and can make significant changes that benefit many. We need to organize to stop injustices against patient and worker safety and rights. We need to advocate protection from financial impacts for patients who have gaps in coverage. Overall, we need to support a notion that will make healthcare a basic right for all people. I am calling for your support and vote for the HEALTHCARE JUSTICE SLATE.
