My name is Yvonne Esquivel and I am running for the opportunity to obtain a seat in the Executive Board Committee for the San Jose Kaiser Medical Center. I have been an employee of Kaiser Permanente for 20 years and a Shop Steward for 15 years. While being a Shop Steward, I have also been the Safety Committee Champion, UBT Sponsor, UBT Representative, and strongly believe in OUR Union.
SEIU-UHW is a member driven Union that with our perseverance, and strong drive, we can continue to have one of the strongest contracts in our nation. As a mother of 3 boys, I am proud to say that being part of our Union, I have a voice for our contract, our benefits and job security for myself, family and yours. With the continued support of my family and friends, they acknowledge and support the roles and responsibilities of what the Executive Board Committee entails.
Given this opportunity, especially in these uncertain times, I will stand up to fight for labor’s rights, fight for benefits, and fight for our job safety. Our fight with Kaiser isn’t over. I’m ready to stand by our members and our contract. Do I have your support?
