“Worker and Community Speak Out for Good Jobs.."
Congressmen Jim Langevin and David Cicilline are among those expected to attend a “Worker and Community Speak Out for Good Jobs and Quality Care at Lifespan” rally to be held at Our Lady of the Rosary Church on Benefit St on Saturday, January 17 2015.
According to a press release from Jobs with Justice, “Lifespan is investing tens of millions of dollars into Epic, a new system of electronic patient records. But tensions are rising over workers' rights and patient care issues just as Lifespan is moving to train employees and go live with Epic at Rhode Island Hospital.”
“The community stands with RI Hospital employees in their campaign for Good Jobs & Quality Patient Care at Lifespan and RI Hospital,” said Jesse Strecker, Executive Director of Rhode Island Jobs with Justice. “As a non-profit institution, Lifespan has a responsibility to ensure that its decisions put people first. Unfortunately, management at RI Hospital has decided that paying their top ten executives more than $16 million is a higher priority than making sure that the hospital has adequate staffing, and that employees have job security, fair wages, and a safe retirement.”
