Local 5110 – Service Workers Bargaining Update


We are now in our 3rd straight year of the COVID-19 pandemic.

We are now in our 3rd straight year of holding things together at the hospital for patients and employees alike.

We are now in our 3rd straight year of risking serious illness, sometimes death, by doing our jobs even though we could get COVID-19 every time we punch in.

For sure, we are now in our 3rd straight year of being under-staffed, over-worked and under-paid.

You would think by now that management would come to recognize our sacrifices and begin to treat us with some dignity and respect.

But the two owners of Prospect CharterCARE could care less about us, our patients, our families or our community.

Not too long ago, Sam Lee and David Topper, the owners of Prospect, borrowed over $1 Billion dollars so they could pay themselves over $220 million in dividends.

But now that it’s time to recognize our efforts, they refuse to give us a dime.

Instead, they want to subcontract our jobs so they can save a few bucks.

Instead, they want to send us home without pay even when we’re on the schedule.

Instead, they want to increase our out-of-pocket expenses for our medical insurance coverage by, for example, increasing our deductibles by potentially thousands a year.

Last time they disrespected us back in 2018, we came together and called them out publicly.

Guess we’ll just have to do that again.
