SF General Hospital Workers Fed Up With Short Staffing Threatening Patient Safety While Millions Go For Outsourcing


SEIU 1021 members along with IFPTE Local 21 members rallied on 4/23/19 at San Francisco General Hospital to protest the dangerous health and safety conditions because of the lack of staffing.

The Mayor London Breed has instituted a 6% pay cut over two years and refuses to have proper staffing for the patients at the hospital. This is one of the reasons for the disappearance of patients and their deaths. The city has also allowed Mark Zuckerberg and his wife to name the hospital after him. Trade unionists discussed having the initiative to change the name back to SF General.

Additionally, the DPH and Breed and Human Resources Director Micki Callahan want to outsource and privatize the pharmacy to contractors.

This is a threat to the health and safety of the patients and the public workers.' There is also a racist attack on African American workers and other minorities workers who are being driven out of San Francisco and the bay area.
