Johns Hopkins Hospital Workers On Strike

Johns Hopkins Hospital Picket LineApril 14, 2014 – Segment 2

We talk to Johns Hopkins Hospital workers on strike about what they are fighting for and their conditions working at a world-class institution. Joining us are Daniel Roberts, member of SEIU Local 1199 and a transporter who’s been at Johns Hopkins Hospital for a year-and-a-half making $12.50 an hour; Carietta Hiers, longtime SEIU 1199 organizer at the Johns Hopkins Hospital who has been present at the ongoing contract talks between the workers at the hospital; and Jeff Singer, founder and former executive director of Health Care for the Homeless and instructor at the University of Maryland School of Social Work.

We also hear a sound from the picket line recorded Friday outside of Johns Hopkins where we talk to workers and supporters.
