The frontline healthcare workers at Kaiser Permanente are fighting right now to maintain good patient care and working conditions. Safe staffing and the kind of wages and benefits that can retain staff is their top priority as they bargain their new union contract. We are Patient Defenders: we are the front line to ensuring that our community gets the healthcare it needs to stay healthy.
For us to successfully achieve safe staffing and good jobs we need to work together, care providers and community members, in a collective fight to save our care system. When we are able to win great staffing and conditions that retain experienced staff, we save lives. In the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic, we need this more than ever, and we also need the voices of both patients and care providers.
Join us on September 28th to raise the voices of both frontline healthcare workers and community members who are fighting for healthcare justice. We will be showing our support for safe staffing, a fair union contract, and a voice for both patients and care workers. Union nurses and health professionals will speak out as well as community organizations, clergy, and patients.
Let's stick together, show our unity, and fight for a just care system in Oregon!
Location: Kaiser Permanente Building (500 NE Multnomah St, Portland)
Date and Time: September 28th, 6pm
Bring your voices, your union colors, and your energy!
