Stand with Anaheim RNs

Posted on July 3, 2012

Kaiser management, without our input, decided to place all Anaheim Emergency Department RNs on uniform shifts from 8 to 8. For years, UNAC/UHCP members have worked in the Anaheim ED on varied shifts (e.g. some shifts are 3 to 3, 7 to 7, 10 to 10), just like many emergency rooms, to ensure sufficient coverage during peak periods. This unilateral change that Kaiser plans to implement doesn’t work for our patients and doesn’t work for us. We are on the frontlines of patient care. To date, Kaiser has ignored our concerns. We are extremely disappointed Kaiser isn’t working with us collaboratively. Please send a message to Kaiser on our behalf in support of the varied shifts that are critical in emergency care.

Proposed “Temporary Waiver” in Budget Would Waive Staffing Ratios During Meal Breaks

Posted on June 14, 2012

The proposed language would allow hospitals to waive the staffing ratios on all units during meals and breaks. “The UNAC/UHCP, AFSCME legislative team immediately developed a plan to actively oppose the language and to inform the legislators that UNAC/UHCP, AFSCME would never support anything that would threaten the staffing ratios that California Registered Nurses worked so hard to achieve and the patients deserve,” said Barbara Blake, RN, UNAC/UHCP State Secretary/Treasurer. Click here to read UNAC/UHCP’s letter of opposition to the proposed language.
