Labor Day 2019: Parade & Action
Kaiser Protest Shuts Down Sunset Blvd
Thousands of healthcare workers, patients, and union members took to the streets on Labor Day, shutting down the intersection of Vermont Ave and Sunset Blvd in protest of Kaiser Permanente’s unfair labor practices and shift from prioritizing patients to profits and enriching top executives. Dozens were arrested in an act of civil disobedience during the protest.
Similar Labor Day protests were held in Oakland, Sacramento, Denver and Portland with tens of thousands of people marching. Click here to view photos of the action.
