SEIU union members protest pay, health care changes at St. John
Members of St. John Medical Center’s biggest union gathered outside the hospital Wednesday to protest a contract proposal that offers a 1 percent pay raise over two years and would sharply increase their health insurance deductibles.
They noted they are being asked to sacrifice even though top PeaceHealth administrators recently received big pay raises.
Nearly 50 members of the Service Employees International Union gathered in the Grotto across the street from hospital. The union represents about 460 service technicians, medical assistants, certified nursing assistants and housekeeping staff.
