In January we launched the Code of Conduct for a stronger, healthier Pittsburgh. Together, we called on UPMC to start acting like a real charity and end its behavior of abuse of workers’ rights.
Our work has made an impact, but UPMC is still fighting. The mega-institution is still bullying the community by denying care to Community Blue subscribers, raising healthcare prices, suing the City, and firing workers who speak out to create a better life for their families.
Workers like Jim Staus, who after seven years of service to UPMC was still just making $11.81 an hour, have also been coming together to speak out for better jobs that will let them cover their basic expenses.
The time has come for us stand together. Join the workers of UPMC who are fighting for all working class people in Pittsburgh on September 7th as they rally and march on UPMC.
Will you add your voice, and demand that UPMC executives stop:
- Firing and harassing workers organizing to build Pittsburgh’s middle class
- Threatening to cut off access to patients who have the “wrong” insurance
- Suing the taxpayers of Pittsburgh to avoid paying their fair share like the rest of us
The workers of UPMC are standing up for all of us. Do you have their backs?
