In 2013, Clinical Lab Scientists at O’Connor Hospital in San Jose, Saint Louise Regional Hospital in Gilroy, and Seton Medical Center in Daly City organized for a voice at work with ESC Local 20. After securing a first contract in 2014 that included significant wage increases and health care plan improvements, these three groups of lab professionals have continued to strengthen the contracts with each negotiations cycle. Recently, 42 Physical Therapists, Physical Therapist Assistants, Occupational Therapists, Speech Language Pathologists, Registered Dietitians, and Discharge Coordinators at O’Connor Hospital also voted to join ESC Local 20. Verity Health was formerly Daughters of Charity Health Systems.
Professionals represented by these contracts are part of the Union’s Medical Professionals Unit.
