Apr. 30, 2023 | TEAMSTER NEWS | As a union that represents virtually every profession in the healthcare industry, the Teamsters are proud to celebrate National Nurses Week, which runs from May 6-12, and all healthcare workers during National Hospital Week, which runs from May 7-13.
The following is a statement from Jason Lopes, Teamsters Health Care Director:
“Healthcare workers are the backbone of each and every community across the world. Day in and day out, these essential workers provide critical, life-saving care for patients. Their selflessness and dedication are inspiring, and they must be protected at all costs.
“The Teamsters Union is honored to represent more than 35,000 health care workers across North America. We are deeply committed to ensuring that healthcare workers are fully protected and compensated fairly for their important work.
“During the COVID-19 pandemic, Teamster nurses and hospital workers put their livelihoods on the line to keep patients and communities safe. While facing adversity and a deadly virus, healthcare workers never wavered in their commitment to helping patients. It is hard to overstate how grateful the Teamsters Union is for the bravery of these workers, and we cannot thank them enough.
“The Teamsters Union is pleased to salute Teamster nurses and health care workers this week and throughout the year for their sacrifices and dedication.”
