We have unfinished business with management at Cedars-Sinai Marina del Rey Hospital and our strike vote has sent them an unmistakable message: we demand that they stop threatening and intimidating our coworkers. We will not stop until they bargain in good faith to solve our staffing problems, and address inadequate wages at Cedars-Sinai Marina del Rey Hospital.

“I was on the strike line last year, and I am committed to strike again to win a fair contract at Marina del Rey and demand that management bargain in good faith.” said Eric Melo, SEIU-UHW Bargaining Team Member and Executive Board Member.

Healthcare workers across California are making historic gains at the bargaining table with life-changing wage increases that recognize our sacrifices and service over the past three years. But management at Cedars-Marina del Rey is still pushing hard to keep our wages lower than other Cedars-Sinai caregivers—even though we provide care at one of the state’s premier hospitals. We demand better.
