In November 2014, Clinical Laboratory staff at Salinas Valley Medical Center overwhelmingly voted to join ESC Local 20. These Lab Professionals have since been fighting tirelessly to push the Hospital’s Administration for recognition of the Union of their choice. The State of California has issued multiple complaints against the Hospital for their failure to recognize ESC Local 20 as the union for this group of professionals. The Hospital continues to delay but ESC Local 20 and the SVMH Lab Professionals will not be deterred from achieving a voice at work.
