Resident and fellow physicians at Loma Linda University Health Education Consortium (LLUHEC) will announce the outcome of a National Labor Relations Board election on Thursday, June 22, determining whether 800 frontline providers working at hospitals across the Inland Empire can unionize and begin collective bargaining.
The union drive, organized with the Union of American Physicians & Dentists (UAPD), began in February and focused on doctors enduring poor working conditions, low wages, and staff burnout. After months of legal challenges from the employer, the NLRB granted an election date in May.
“If these residents and fellows are successful, it’ll be the first union ever formed at Loma Linda University Health,” said Dr. Stuart Bussey, UAPD president. “With a union, they’ll have a say in the workplace and be treated with the respect they deserve.”
TIME: 2 p.m.
DATE: Thursday, June 22, 2023
LOCATION: 11500 W Olympic Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90064
