ESC Local 20 represents roughly 350 medical professionals in three different groups at HCA’s Good Samaritan Hospital in Los Gatos and Regional Medical Center in San Jose. After negotiating separate contracts for many years, Clinical Laboratory Scientists, Imaging Professionals, and Respiratory Therapists united under one contract in 2014. Now, all of the bargaining units at both locations are working together to strengthen our union, contract, and working conditions.
At the end of 2017, nearly 40 Speech Pathologists, Physical Therapy, and Occupational Therapy health professionals organized to join ESC Local 20 and are also part of this contract.
Dietitians and Social Work professionals followed in 2018, and are currently negotiating to join the existing collective bargaining agreement.
Professionals represented by this contract are part of the Union’s Medical Professionals Unit.
