SEIU1021 AHS Highland Hospital Workers Strike for PPE/To Stop Contracting Out & Privatization
by Labor Video Project
Wednesday Oct 7th, 2020 4:01 PM
Over 3500 workers from SEIU 1021 and CNA struck the Alameda Heath System on October 7, 2020. This agency set up by the Alameda Board Of Supervisors has been attacking health and safety conditions in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, contracting out and union busting. Workers discussed the destruction of the healthcare system and demanded that this company be removed from management of public health in Alameda County.

Over 3,500 workers who are members of SEIU 1021 and the NNU-CNA went out on October 7, 2020 on a 5 day strike against the Alameda Health System which is the privatized outfit that was set up to run the Alameda public health system.

Workers talk about the dangerous health and safety conditions as a result of short staffing and contracting out in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic.

They also report on the struggle to get the Alameda Board of Supervisors to take responsibility for not only the dangerous deadly conditions but the retaliations against workers who have been fired for raising health and safety conditions.
