Let’s make some noise and show the community that we are there for them and we won’t rest until we’ve forced Alameda Health System’s CEO and Board of Trustees to do what the Alameda County Board of Supervisors have told them to do: give us a fair contract and put public health in public hands.

Caravan route:


ALERT! Car Caravan Route for Friday, October 9, at 2 p.m.!
We have had to cancel the barbeque, unfortunately.

Today’s planned 2 p.m. march at AHS headquarters is being changed to a car caravan. Please assemble at the Alameda Labor Council: 7750 Pardee Lane, Oakland, to prepare for the caravan.

The caravan route is as follows:

AHS Management’s Proposed Takeaways and Unfair Labor Practices

In our last bargaining session, last Tuesday the 15th, the General Unit was joined by observers from the Alameda County Board of Supervisors, Oakland City Council, and ACCE Action, a community group we often partner with.

At that session, AHS proposed a brand new takeaway to gut Appendix F in the GU contract. Appendix F provides career ladders for many classifications. AHS’ proposal would mean trapping new hires at the I level of their classification, and not letting them advance to II and get the corresponding raise.


Environmental Services workers at Alameda Health System fight back against layoffs—and win.

When Alameda Health System began notifying people of layoffs, workers knew how damaging it would be for patient care across the County’s hospitals and health services—and they began organizing to take action at the upcoming Board of Trustees meeting.

Flanked by over 30 coworkers and supporters in scrubs and purple union shirts, EVS worker Donn DesBoine told the AHS Board of Trustees at their September meeting, “Sometimes there’s one housekeeper to a floor…If the layoffs happen, there’s no care for infection control…[and] the patients are going to be affected.”
