On May 27th, the Local 34 Officers and Executive Board met with School of Medicine Dean Robert Alpern and other University leaders. We met to discuss our findings after surveying hundreds of clinical workers on the extent to which Yale-New Haven Hospital management and Yale management are threatening our clinical jobs. The survey and resulting report, “An Epidemic of Insecurity: How Yale Management Threatens Good Medical Jobs,” were done to document and reinforce to the Yale Administration the bases of our job security contract proposals. Following are highlights from the report.

An Epidemic of Insecurity: How Yale Management Threatens Good Medical Jobs
- Yale Management is threatening our jobs across all groups of workers in the Medical School.
- A large share of our members are working under Hospital managers who are not accountable to our contract.
Yale is growing, why are our jobs under threat?
