UNAC Screens at LA CLC – November 17, 2009
At the November Los Angeles Central Labor Council (LA CLC) delegate meeting, UNAC/UHCP was highlighted as one of the leading health care unions in the county. UNAC/UHCP State Secretary Barbara Blake, RN, provided attendees with a presentation on the union's history and explained why labor health care facilities are superior to non-unionized facilities in terms of patient outcomes and working conditions. UNAC/UHCP members and staff provided attendees with blood pressure screenings, eye exams, and counseling on H1N1 safety as part of the meeting's activities. Much thanks to Marcia Schlesinger, NP (Kaiser Sunset), Mary Danclair, RN (Kaiser Sunset) and Dr. Shasa Dabner (Kaiser Panorama City) for volunteering their services and actively participating in CLC meetings.
