December 17th starting at noon @ OHSU Hospital
Nurses are on the frontlines of the global pandemic, taking care of people with COVID. ONA nurses are currently advocating for COVID safety protections, including a review of personal protective equipment, worker-voice in safety decisions, and paid leave after high-risk exposures.
ONA/AURN represents 2,800 nurses throughout OHSU. Nurse union leaders bring the patients' voice to hospital administration by advocating for high standards like contact tracing/testing, safe quarantine, staffing to acuity, and reasonable compensation for their ongoing sacrifice. Currently, OHSU is refusing to commit to essential COVID safety protections. OHSU has over a billion dollars in savings and is the most profitable hospital in the state. Nurses are picketing the hospital for their own, as well as their patients’ and our community’s, safety!
If your schedule permits, please join nurses, labor leaders, and legislators to stand with OHSU nurses, Thursday, December 17th at 12:00 pm. ONA is committed to social distancing, mask wearing, and will provide hand sanitizer.
