NLRB rules HCA hospitals improperly executed pandemic pay programs, orders rescindment

The National Labor Relations Board found last week that three of HCA’s southern California hospitals broke federal law by not bargaining with union nurses and (at one  hospital) professional employees before implementing pandemic pay programs in 2020. 


The NLRB also ruled that one of the facilities — Los Robles Hospital — violated federal law when management canceled the hospital’s pandemic pay program in June 2020 for professional unit workers.
