LAUNCH EVENT TODAY: Facing Stress & Building Resilience

The stress of this pandemic is taking a toll on all of us.  We’re launching The Resilience Toolkit to help all of us increase our capacity to meet and recover from stress during this difficult time. Led by healing and wellness expert Nkem Ndefo, RN, MSN, CNM, the Resilience Toolkit combines video and live sessions to help us identify the symptoms of stress and give us the skills to better face stress and grow our resilience.

RSVP now for the kickoff session on Facebook Live TODAY at 5:30 p.m., Tuesday, May 5.

TELL PRIME: Stop Attacking Caregivers!

Prime Healthcare is using this crisis as an opportunity to cut worker sick leave and disability benefits. Our fellow SEIU-UHW members across Prime are holding a socially-distanced protest calling on management to stop attacking caregivers as we lead the state through this pandemic.

Let’s show our brothers and sisters across Prime that we stand with them — tweet out this message to reject Prime’s corporate greed and anti-worker tactics.
