Dozens of San Francisco SEIU 1021 and IFPTE 21 SFGH ARF workers, patients, family members rallied on 8/22/19 at the SFGH Assisted Residential.

Facility ARF home to protest the eviction notices to many of the disabled mentally ill residents.

“These clients cannot prepare their own food, do their own laundry nor manage their own money. They also cannot manage their medications, with- out which they would return to suffering major psychiatric crises on a regular basis and would cycle through the city’s ER’s and psychiatric emergency room,” said Jennifer Esteen, a registered psychiatric nurse at ZSFGH.

SF Mayor London Breed with the support of Supervisor Madelman want the center turned into a temporary space at Navigation centers with non-profit workers doing public worker jobs at $17.50 an hour. These two tier wages pit public workers against non-profit workers.

The mayor and Human Resources director Micki Callahan are outsourcing hundreds of millions of dollars to non-profits that pay the workers substandard wages for public work.

The management of ARF are also illegally bullying the SEIU 1021 shop steward W.D. Flient at ARF in this union busting tactic.

The unions as the patients were not informed of the changes although they are required to union contracts and the law. The workers talked about how these tactics are harming the patients and workers at the facility
