Rally to Support Striking Workers at Toyota Vallejo

Tuesday, October 15th, 2019

Title: Rally to Support Striking Workers at Toyota Vallejo
Location: Toyota Vallejo ~ 201 Auto Mall Pkway, Vallejo

Description: We are holding a RALLY to support the striking technicians at Toyota Vallejo as they enter their 2nd
month on STRIKE!

October 19th from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Contact Brian Fealy at (925) 457-8341 for more information.

After nearly three years of negotiations, these members rejected the company’s proposal to STOP COVERING FAMILY MEDICAL BENEFITS for future new hires. The Union’s attempts to continue negotiations were met by an attack on UNION SECURITY, the Union’s fundamental relationship with their membership. This attempt to bully technicians into submission is designed to divide the workers and diminish their collective power. It is an UNFAIR LABOR PRACTICE and why we had to take this action.

Support NUHW Members at an Informational Picket at MNHC

Tuesday, October 15th, 2019

Title: Support NUHW Members at an Informational Picket at MNHC
Location: MNHC 240 Shotwell St @16th St
Description: NUHW members at Mission Neighborhood Health Center have been in bargaining for months. The MNHC was created during the war on poverty. 52 years later it pays poverty wages and fails to honor the voice of long term workers, some of whom have worked at MNHC for over 20 years and make less than $20 an hour. Management has failed to bargain in good faith acts and after months of negotiations has barely even considered the members’ proposals. Come support these workers on Tuesday!
Start Time: 12:00

Kasier Rally

Thursday, October 10th, 2019

Title: Kasier Rally
Location: One Kaiser Plaza, Oakland
Description: Kaiser’s mental health care system is in crisis. Clinics are understaffed. Patients are waiting two months between appointments. Psychologists, therapists and social workers are booked out weeks in advance and must work through their breaks and into evenings to squeeze in time for desperate patients.
Our friends, family members and neighbors aren’t getting the care they need, and Kaiser is refusing to take meaningful action. So Kaiser mental health clinicians are taking a stand — outside Kaiser’s Oakland headquarters.

We’re establishing an ongoing presence outside the Ordway Building, beginning Sunday, Oct. 13 with a 2 p.m. rally and the unveiling of a 60-foot long structure that will be covered with some of the hundreds of stories submitted by Kaiser patients about their struggles to receive mental health care. Over the next month, the plaza will become the nerve center for public gatherings and protests by Kaiser mental health clinicians and patients determined to achieve real parity for mental health care.

Kaiser isn’t going to fix its mental health care system on its own. It’s been fined, cited and ordered to accept outside monitoring over repeated violations of California mental health parity laws. But, despite record profits, it refuses to take the necessary steps to reduce wait times and help mental health clinicians handle their unsustainable caseload.

It’s time for action. Show your support by standing with clinicians and patients on Sunday:
Kaiser Rally
Sunday, Oct. 13, 2 p.m.

1 Kaiser Plaza
Oakland, CA
