Day five. Our fifth and final day on the ULP strike line at Marina del Rey Hospital was marked by the support of faith leaders, community allies and the familiar faces of many who have walked the line each day since our ULP strike began on
Monday morning.

Over the course of these five days we have shown unquestionable commitment to the patients and community we serve, and they have heard our calls for help. We have also shown our dedication to each other as healthcare workers, but our fight is not over.

We will resume negotiations with management next week, and we remain committed to our demand that they bargain in good faith around our priorities to improve wages and staffing at Marina del Rey. We are hopeful that management received our message and is ready to work together.
The ULP strike will officially end on Saturday, December 17 at 6:59am. You will be expected to return to work if you are scheduled at this time. Please contact your union representative if you have questions or need assistance.

Day four on the ULP strike line at Marina del Rey Hospital was all about our community and the people we serve. Elected officials and supporters carried the voice of healthcare workers striking against unfair labor practices at Cedars-Sinai Marina. We are not alone, and the sounds of support were surely heard not just on the street, but also inside our facility were management continues to bargain in bad faith and deny our calls for healthcare justice.

Tomorrow we will be joined by faith leaders and other community supporters who are standing with us through this fight for patient care—bringing renewed meaning and purpose to our call, “United for All!”

Day three on the ULP strike line at Marina del Rey Hospital saw welcome faces and renewed spirit as supporters flooded in from across Southern California to make their voices heard under the cry, “we are united for all!” Our fellow UHW union members from Dignity Health, Kaiser, City of Hope, SoCal Hollywood Hospital and more came together to demand management bargain in good faith, and a fair contract for our brothers and sisters at Cedars-Sinai Marina.

Management continued to provide free meals and coffee during the work stoppage to employees inside the facility, even as they commit ULPs and try to cut these and other benefits in our agreement. Regardless, we continue to be encouraged by the overwhelming support of our coworkers, union family and community allies who have made us feel ever more justified in this fight for patient care. We demand that management bargain in good faith now and work together to find solutions that will improve conditions at Marina del Rey Hospital.

Day Two. The weather changed on day two of the Cedars-Sinai unfair labor practice strike, but the heart was the same. Positive energy could be felt all around the strike line, everyone united to force Cedars-Sinai to bargain in good faith over staffing and fair wages at Marina del Rey Hospital. Dancing, powerful speeches, and loud chants could be heard along Lincoln Boulevard, one of the main streets around the facility, as the day went on.

Yesterday, the rain didn’t stop us, and neither will Cedars-Sinai Marina del Rey’s greed. We will continue to stand our ground to stop Cedars-Marina from committing ULPs and keeping our wages low, cutting our holiday meals, and charging us for parking. We need to demand Cedars-Sinai stop committing ULPs and provide more staffing and respect for all caregivers–and until that is done, we will continue to walk the strike line!

UHW members from across Los Angeles come out and support us tomorrow. Let’s show Cedars-Sinai Marina del Rey that when they fight with one, they fight with all of us. Let’s continue to fight for ourselves and all the communities we serve, because we are United for All.

Day One. Rain or shine, healthcare workers at Cedars-Sinai Marina del Rey Hospital showed up and showed out as they began their five-day unfair labor practice strike outside the facility. Caregivers once again showing that some bad weather cannot dampen our spirits, and that when we fight, we win!

Despite the weather, frontline staff came out to demand that management at Cedars-Sinai Marina del Rey bargain in good faith—and put patient care first instead of profits. Even healthcare workers from other hospitals stood in rainy solidarity with their brothers and sisters—because we are United for All.

Chants, signs, and banners were proudly carried throughout the day as members walked the line—tired of working conditions, understaffing and the lack of respect, despite fighting a pandemic for almost three years. 

Some smiles and others with more serious faces, but everyone stood united with the same purpose– to protect patient care. Fighting not just for themselves but for patients, families, and the communities they serve. 

The weather on day-one was a sign that just like every struggle there is always sunshine after the rain, even if it takes a fight.
