The City and County Of San Francisco is moving to privatize thousands of jobs through the EPIC program and the LEAN plan while outsourcing city jobs to non-union low paid workers.
Part of this outsourcing drive is taking place at the San Francisco General Hospital renamed Zuckerberg pharmacy where the DPH management and San Francisco Human Resource DHR Director Micki Callahan are intent on more privatization and outsourcing the pharmacy for more profits. The City has pushed for privatization of the entire hospital and renamed it the Zuckerberg Hospital despite opposition by CCSF workers and the community. SF City top officials and executives want to turn it into a privatized revenue producing operation instead of a public hospitaly and communit healthcare centers for the poor and working people.

Speakers will report on who is doing this privatization and what the cost of the city and health system will be. This outsourcing is escalating and is also taking place in other hospitals including Highland Hospital in Oakland and the threat to outsource pharmacy jobs at Kaiser. This is combined with attacks on whistleblowers and a racist workplace bullying attack on African American and other minority workers as well as senior workers. African American workers many of whom testified at CCSF Board Of Supervisors hearing who are being illegally harassed and terminated out of their jobs for more profiteering by the privatizers while millions more are being spent on consultants.

The San Francisco Labor Council has also called for an end to privatization and the bullying of CCSF DPH workers and other workers.

Speakers will include
Brenda Barros, SEIU 1021 SF General Hospital Chapter Chair and COPE co-chair
John Wadsworth, SEIU 1021 General Hospital VP
Cheryl Thornton, SEIU 1021 Steward and SF Potrero Hill Community Healthcare Worker
Lisa Milos, CWA UPTE UCSF rank and file member
Theresa Harris, SFGH SEIU 1021 Nurse
