Your Services Don’t Have to Suffer

Your Patients & Community Depend on Continuation of Health Care Services

When engaged in collective bargaining, the stakes are high. The 3 most important steps for you to take are:

Engage Experts

Don’t “go it alone.” Resources are available. Union leaders have much more experience in planning for a strike than most hospital executives. Having experts working by your side provides the confidence to negotiate a better collective bargaining agreement. We work with a database of over 40,000 healthcare professionals to provide the right individuals for each work stoppage situation.

Be Prepared for Short-Term Strikes
Unions adopt this strategy to minimize the impact on union members and compel hospitals to implement their strike plans, perhaps more than once. Better to have a good plan and not need it.
Find Well-Qualified Temporary Staff
Identifying and getting work commitments from well-qualified health care professionals, as well as arranging for travel and housing is a daunting undertaking. This job can and should be outsourced allowing you to handle your other pressing responsibilities.
