Sanders tweets support for Nevada Culinary Union days after health plan criticism

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Thursday tweeted his support of the Nevada Culinary Union just days after the union warned its members against his “Medicare for All” plan.

Sanders said he stands with the union “fighting for health care, a pension and fair wages” as it tries to negotiate a contract with Valley Hospital in Las Vegas.

The Culinary Union is a key force in elections in the state, and any negative messaging from the group could pose a challenge for a candidate’s chances of winning the state’s caucuses on Feb. 22.

The union wants a contract for workers who staff the cafeteria and clean the hospital rooms, but says the hospital’s parent company, UHS, won’t negotiate fairly.

“Making $780 million in profit, [UHS] is one of the largest, most profitable hospital corporations in the country. They must put aside their greed, come to the table and negotiate a fair contract,” Sanders tweeted.

2. Any union backing private health insurance tied to your job

 

Will cost 2 1/2 to 4 times more , and stop if you change your job, and be saving their members much higher monthly costs with a MFA plan. Any union suggesting higher costs for their members insurance aren't working for their members, and are working for big insurance companies .
