DCNA & SEIU 1199 CALL TO ARMS –
PLEASE CALL OR EMAIL MEMBERS OF THE DC COUNCIL AND THE CITY ADMINISTRATOR TO SUPPORT WORKERS AND RESIDENTS IN WARDS 7 & 8
On Tuesday, December 4th, the DC Council is poised to vote on the “East End Hospital Equity Act of 2018.” The legislation gives carte blanche to the District and George Washington University Hospital, a subsidiary of mega-corporation, Universal Health Services, to no longer recognize DCNA and SEIU 1199 as your union and to refuse to hire UMC employees into positions within the new hospital. There is also no promise to provide specialty care at the new hospital. Howard University has also stated that if Universal Health Services obtain this exclusive contract, it will mean the end of Howard University Hospital in the near future.
