|AFSCME Council 18|
Calling on Attention All UNMH Employees and Community Supporters :
Through their actions and a failure to budget for a wage increase year after year, UNMH shows that it is dedicated only to overall strategic planning of the hospital and not to the employees. District 1199NM believes that partnerships require reciprocity, which the union believes is currently lacking.
Employees continue to deliver quality patient care to the community, more and more often without adequate staffing and resources, but are receiving nothing in return.
Join District 1199NM for an informational rally to fight for a long overdue wage increase for UNMH employees. Coffee and donuts will be provided for all who attend. In order to be successful, community members and UNMH employees must take a stand and come to the streets of LOMAS either before you go to work or when you are off shift.
The union will be presenting a petition demanding a wage increase for UNMH employees at the “Board of Regents” meeting, immediately following the rally. For those who can attend your presence is necessary and appreciated.
“STAND TOGETHER FOR A WAGE INCREASE! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!”
When: Tuesday, December 10, 2013
*STRENGTH IS IN NUMBERS. STRENGTHEN OUR UNION.
Congratulations to the Santa Fe County Detention Centers Medical Support Staff who voted to join AFSCME on Friday, November 22. The vote was overwhelmingly for AFSCME. Every vote cast FOR Union was a vote for AFSCME, with ZERO votes cast for a competing association, and only one vote for no union representation.
Medical support staff braved icy roads and a big New Mexico snowstorm (even on their day off) to cast their ballots Friday.
The LPNs, RNs, Nurse Practitioners, Physicians Assistants, and Pharmacy Techs were led in their efforts by an incredible, strong internal organizing committee.
“We are excited,” said organizing committee member, Jessica Narvaiz, RN. “We need strong representation and AFSCME is the union for the job. The entire campaign was quick and smooth, AFSCME was there for us when we had no place else to turn.”Read more >>>
