Hospital Security Officers Launch Statewide Strike To Protest Unfair Labor Practices
“It’s clear that Inter-Con has repeatedly committed unfair labor practices in violation of the law,” said Orrin Baird, Associate General Counsel for SEIU. “That’s the whole basis of this strike—workers’ civil rights have been violated.”
Dozens of security officers gathered outside the Kaiser Oakland Medical Center and the Kaiser South Sacramento Medical Center early Tuesday morning to launch the strike, with dozens more officers conducting similar three-day walk-outs at 15 Kaiser medical facilities throughout Northern and Central California from Modesto to Santa Rosa.
