Having a union means we can advocate for things like higher wages, better benefits, representation on the job, and workplace safety, all through collective bargaining. Because when we work together, we have the power to make change.
THE WHAT: we’re committed to improving residency training and education; advancing patient care and safety; Expanding healthcare access for our communities; advocating for our patients and ourselves; and addressing resident well-being on multiple levels
THE WHY: because having a union gives us the leverage we need to ensure we can raise the standard of our training and patient care. Our patients deserve the best care, regardless of where they live or how much they make. We believe that a positive work environment is necessary for quality training and that residents deserve the highest standards in order to give the best possible care to patients.
THE HOW: Through collective bargaining we create systems that decrease out-of-title work, give patients better care and improve our education. We’re increasing the membership of CIR and providing unique opportunities for career training. Working together, we win contracts that help us live our best lives both inside and outside of the hospital.
