WORKERS HOLD INFORMATIONAL PICKET AT GROSSMONT HOSPITAL


By Nadin Abbott

November 20, 2012 (La Mesa)—Some workers arrived after their shifts ended; others came from home to join a march yesterday afternoon outside Grossmont Hospital. All were determined to draw public attention to their efforts to gain better working conditions and compensation.

United Healthcare Employees, affiliated with the AFL-CIO,continues contract negotiations for workers contracted by Sharp Healthcare through Sodexo to manage food services and custodial work.

Gloria Schwatka, a worker, told me that Sodexo first offered a wage freeze and then a scant 0.05% wage increase in the third year.

“Sodexo doesn’t want full time employees, but only part time,” she said, noting that this way the company can avoid paying benefits.

This was Monday afternoon by the way. Why I say we are at the begining of something.
