HCA workers – united as a union – win new standards in California

After months of bargaining, workers represented by SEIU-UHW at five HCA-owned hospitals in California reached a tentative agreement on a new union contract with HCA last week – averting a strike that was set to begin on May 22.


The agreement includes significant investments in frontline workers– demands that HCA workers across the country continue to rally for at unprecedented levels.


The agreement includes 15% wage increases over three years, a $21 minimum wage, and a process to raise staffing concerns


Members of UHW in California are proving that frontline workers can hold America’s largest hospital corporation accountable when they unite in their union at the bargaining table and beyond.
