The workers were seeking to join 1199 SEIU United Healthcare Workers East. The union filed a complaint with the National labor Relations Board accusing Chase Brexton of firing the workers to intimidate other workers.
“My doctor was the last one to give me a hug and well wishes and said if I needed ANYTHING, if I was stranded over here in SF, that they’d hook me up. At my lowest point, being able to see her I feel really saved my life.” That person is Jill Crank, who was the fifth person to be fired this week.
A protest has been organized on social media against "Union Busting at Chase Brexton" and will take place in front of the Mount Vernon Center, 1111 N. Charles St. on August 19 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
