Oranee L Batiste, Executive Board, Kaiser District 6: Kaiser Seat 6A – San Jose, Gilroy – Healthcare Justice Slate

I believe in our Union and am dedicated to doing whatever it takes to fight for what’s right and support our members. As a previous Executive Board Member, I had the awesome experience leading my coworkers in strike voting, pickets, Dialysis campaign, Leaders to Lawmakers, and actions at the facility. I also stepped up as a Strike Captain and chose to be part of the Labor Day action where I stood hand in hand with other members to get arrested not only for my family but also my coworkers’ families. I believe it’s extremely important to continue to build understanding and give members the education needed to understand what is going on and why – it’s crucial in my role as an Executive Board Member. I look forward to continuing my work; updating my members on what’s going on and keeping them active in Union activities. I’m extremely passionate about the care of others. Being part of the signature collection for Dialysis in the past made me understand the importance of Healthcare Justice and the care of others. The growth of our Union is also extremely important. With numbers, we will continue to win in Healthcare.
