San Francisco Department of Public Health (SF DPH) is the heart of the city and cares for some of the most vulnerable residents. In the midst of a thriving economy, SF DPH remains understaffed and under resourced, which compromises patient and staff safety. We strive to provide the best possible care to our patients but need the resources to do so. We have an opportunity to do this when we begin contract negotiations in March. Our contract expires on June 30th of this year.
Our current salary, when compared to other area hospitals ,will not enable SF DPH to recruit experienced nurses as we prepare for the transition to the new hospital. We need fair wages and benefits that allow us to retain nurses committed to serving our diverse community. We need to ensure that front-line nurses have a voice in DPH policy decisions that affect our patients and us.
We need to hear from you to prioritize all of our issues at the bargaining table. Thank you for filling out the SEIU 1021 RN bargaining survey today.
