Under a union contract, you’ll see guaranteed wage increases every year. Period. Here, we assume an annual raise of 3%, like the one we just negotiated in our recent contract with Kaiser.
We don’t know if you’ll get a raise in the next four years — and neither do you. With no guaranteed increases and no transparency, you’re at the mercy of management.

SUCCESS STORY

Gisella Thomas, RCP

Hospital, City

In my forty-five years of work, I’ve seen a lot of ways healthcare can fail its patients and professionals—favoritism, scheduling issues, and nonchalance from hospital management in addressing our concerns. Joining a union fourteen years ago helped me finally address issues in my workplace, without the fear of losing my job. Having benefits like family healthcare has given me a sense of ease and peace when I return home after a long day—I feel like my time spent working is truly worth it. The real difference I’ve encountered in being able to move management is because of the power this union has given me, and many others like me.

SUCCESS STORY

Kimon Christopher, Lead Lab Assistant

Hospital, City

I had to work two jobs to make ends meet for four years. Management didn’t care, and I was unable to give patients the time and attention they deserved because we were always rushed to get the job done. Ever since I’ve joined a union, I can work one job, spend more time with my daughter, and lead a stress-free life. A huge win for me is being able to pay no premiums and minimal copayments on a healthcare plan that truly works. In my time here I’ve learned that a union is a group of people coming together to make a difference. None of us are alone, and we can get real wins by working together.

SUCCESS STORY

Georgette Bradford, Ultrasound Technologist

Hospital, City

I know what it’s like for management to treat me as expendable, to deal with unequal pay and wages, and little to no insurance benefits—despite working in some of the riskiest, high-skilled jobs. Being in a union for the last fifteen years has helped me find my voice on the job, and overcome the barriers preventing quality patient care. Unions also care about their professionals—the healthcare coverage helps relieve a lot of my anxieties and makes for a better workplace. At a time when corporations are valued over people, joining a union helped me realize what we’re really worth.
