Support AHS Workers who are part of East Bay Medical Group

This year, frontline healthcare workers at Alameda Health System have showcased the power that comes with standing united with your coworkers. Being members of a union gives workers a strong voice on the job to advocate for our patients, our communities, and our families.

But not every healthcare worker within Alameda Health System has the power of a union at their backs.

This year, frontline healthcare workers at Alameda Health System have showcased the power that comes with standing united with your coworkers. Being members of a union gives workers a strong voice on the job to advocate for our patients, our communities, and our families.

But not every healthcare worker within Alameda Health System has the power of a union at their backs. The Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants who are part of the East Bay Medical Group, which is owned by AHS, don't have a collective voice at work. These workers have formally requested to become members of our union, SEIU 1021, and be covered under the same contract as their colleagues.

These workers filed for recognition with the Public Employment Relations Board at the end of September and are currently waiting for Alameda Health Systems to respond. AHS has asked for an extension and we expect a response by Wednesday, November 25th.

I support AHS workers who are part of the East Bay Medical Group in their fight for their union

Sign our petition asking the Alameda County Board of Supervisors to voice their support for these frontline healthcare workers.

Dear Alameda County Board of Supervisors,

When healthcare workers have a strong voice and the power of a union at work, it's a win for patients and our communities.

The Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners who are part of Easy Bay Medical Group, which is owned by Alameda Health System, are asking to join their colleagues across AHS by adding their voice to their union, SEIU 1021. These workers are on the frontlines of care in our communities and know best what their patients need. When they have the power to be strong advocates for improving care and conditions in our hospitals and clinics, it's a victory for us all.

I support these workers in their fight to join other AHS workers as members of SEIU 1021, and ask the Alameda County Board of Supervisors to do the same. Together, we can build better hospitals, health centers, and clinics so that all families across our county have access to affordable, quality care. Thank you.
