Join Women & Infants’ 1199 members to show Care New England executives WE ARE UNITED for GOOD JOBS, SAFE STAFFING, and QUALITY CARE at Women & Infants Hospital!
WHEN: December 7, 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm
WHERE: 45 Willard Ave. (Care New England), Providence
Health care workers have made Women & Infants a world-class facility for generations of Rhode Island families. These dedicated workers, who provide quality care every hour of every day, should earn living wages and good benefits so we can support our families at home.
More recently, Care New England corporate management has understaffed our hospital and harmed the quality of care we can deliver. They have failed to make needed investments in the hospital, and now they are proposing diminished benefits for staff. That hasn’t stopped them from establishing high-cost redundant management positions and from paying Care New England CEO, Dennis Keefe, over $1 million per year.
Management teams have come and gone over the years, but Women & Infants has consistently been one of the best hospitals in the country for women and newborns because of its staff.
SEIU District 1199NE members at the Hospital are currently negotiating a new contract, and we are fighting to improve staffing and quality care at Women & Infants. Join us in solidarity on Wednesday!
