MPTF workers to leaflet Night Before bash

Healthcare employees to inform attendees of contract dispute

Unionized healthcare workers at the Motion Picture Television Fund will leaflet at the annual “Night Before” fundraiser Saturday at the Beverly Hilton over the lack of progress in contract negotiations.

A spokesman said for the Service Employees International Union of the United Healthcare Workers union said that the leaflets will thank attendees for their support of the hospital and long-term care center along with detailing the issues in the contract dispute.

The union has been seeking a lower patient-to-staff ratio and maintaining benefits while the MPTF has asserted that employees are being treated fairly. The two sides have bargaining over a successor agreement to an expired contract since last August.

The workers protested Thursday at the hospital and long-term care center in Woodland Hills.

George Clooney and Jeffrey Katzebenberg announced a $350 million fundraising campaign for the MPTF a year ago. Katzenberg, Steven Spielberg and David Geffen each donated $30 million to the fund.
